Malik has been a regular speaker at the event for the last 10 years and has been sharing the wisdom of Ayurveda as well the benefits of eating the right vegetarian food for one’s body. Malik’s session was informative as well as highly entertaining. He also spoke about Happy life Yoga which is a key element to have balance between the inner world and external world.  

The vegan activist and author of “101 Reasons I’m a Vegetarian”, Pamela Rice started this event, formerly called Veggie Pride Parade, 14 years ago. This year the name had to be changed because there is no parade happening due to Covid-19 and so the organizers didn’t want the word “parade” in the name to confuse people. Pamela also spoke this year in detail about the government’s role in the oppression of animals. This year the event was organized by Maggie Sargent.
