New England’s unifying resource helping you Live the Local Vegan Life!

vegan (vee·gn) – a commitment against oppression

zine (zeen) – a publication filled with passion and used to share ideas, thoughts, & stories

VeganZine is a small business that was founded in 2020 by local vegans for local vegans. We believe in the power of community and want to make it as easy as possible to stay current with neighborhood news, meet local businesses, and socialize at upcoming events across New England. 

Our Zine hosts community created content in a variety of styles and genres. We also offer a range of services tailored to the needs of brands, creators, and organizations of all sizes. If it’s vegan-friendly and local to New England then it belongs on VeganZine!

Kayla

Kayla

(She/ her)

Kayla is the Co-Founder of VeganZine and an antioppression vegan. She believes strongly that intersectional activism is crucial for collective liberation. Kayla is also extremely passionate about food systems, food justice, and nutrition. When she’s not learning about food, talking about food, or eating food, Kayla is probably snuggling with her companion dog, Ginny, and caring for her house plants.

Erica is the Co-Founder of VeganZine and the Founder of @Vegan_Kween. She has always been a big lover of food, and since going vegan over 4 years ago, her passion has been finding the next best vegan meal and sharing it with the community, because yes, vegan burgers and donuts exist! Animal & human rights are at the core of Erica’s veganism, and is proud to bring that voice & mindset to VeganZine, where various perspectives & voices are hosted. When she’s not working on the VeganZine, you can find her running her online book club, or working at a marketing tech company, who happens to have many vegan clients!

or Lizzie for short

Lizzie is the proud Editor in Chief for VeganZine. She has always been certain of two things in life: Her love for animals and her love for the environment. Starting as a vegetarian in middle school her eventual transition to veganism began in June of 2016. Human, animal, and environmental rights is what drives her and her curiosity alongside her affinity for writing and factual information is what led her to major in journalism at the University of Massachusetts Amherst: It was there that she received her Bachelor’s degree in 2020. Elisabeth lives and breathes by the phrase “live kind,” and believes veganism is not only intersectional but a constantly evolving and growing way of life. She is also passionate about art, astrology, fiction, film, food, and wellness!

Is all of your content 100% vegan ?

Everything on VeganZine is vegan or vegan-friendly! We founded VeganZine to help make it easy to navigate through daily life with veganism as a default. We are always supportive of local businesses, creators, and makers who are vegan-friendly

What do you consider to be local?

Our definition of local is pretty broad, basically we know it when we see it! To be a bit more specific, if it’s created, organized, and distributed in the New England* area, we consider it local. We always try to be as transparent as possible in our content and will be specific as often as possible.

*New England is the Northeastern part of the United States that encompasses Maine, Vermont, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Connecticut and Rhode Island. It is also important to note that these state lines are a colonial construct built on land that was never ceded by the people and tribes indigenous to the area. Please take a moment to acknowledge what Native Land you are on and learn more about Indigenous rights, history, and culture from Cultural Survival.

What is intersectional veganism?

The term intersectional was coined in 1989 by lawyer and civil rights advocate Kimberlé Crenshaw. Intersectionality is a framework built from the understanding that identities are dynamic and don’t exist in isolation from each other. We see veganism as an intersectional identity and a commitment to actively stand against all systems of oppression and injustice. We are vegan for people, animals, and our planet and know that our futures are all interconnected.

How can I support the work you do in the community?

What a generous question! Your recommendations to other vegans, creators, and brands in the area are always a huge help. You can also subscribe to our newsletter and follow us on social media.
