VegEvents: Connecting You to Vegan Events Worldwide
It’s not easy to be a vegan in a world where those around us are busy killing, grilling, or wearing animals. Jason Schramm, a New Jersey-based engineer and techie, went vegan and immediately felt a strong need to connect with other vegans. But, where, how? So, he created VegEvents.com. It lists hundreds of events happening around the world that involve veganism and animal rights, from cooking demos to protests to galas, from vegan-themed movie nights to book clubs. Check out Jason’s chat with our own Jane Velez-Mitchell!
VegEvents.Com Shows Vegans: You Are Never Alone
It was as soon as Jason Schramm went vegan that he saw a gap in the movement because he suddenly felt lonely and isolated.
“When I went vegan about 6 years ago, I knew that I needed to find other vegans out there. I knew I needed support,” he explains. What better way to meet like-minded individuals than at an event? So… Schramm, whose expertise is in building websites, took the initiative and created this global clearinghouse for vegan events. Now, VegEvents.com offers everyone a list of hundreds of vegan events happening worldwide.

Using Skills To Aid the Movement
Schramm doesn’t just have good ideas. He puts them into action.
“For me, being an engineer and a problem-solver, I see a problem that’s out there and I want to fix it,” says Schramm. “My skill set, being web-development, how can I take that to help the most people, to have the most impact?”
