Description of charity's activities and outcomes
Vegan Australia envisions a world in which people treat animals with respect, ensure justice for them and enable them to live their lives free of human exploitation, use and ownership. We do this by supporting the vegan community, educating the public about animal rights and veganism and presenting a strong voice for veganism to governments, institutions, corporations and the media. Vegan Australia uses donations to advocate for veganism using public campaigns, to present a strong voice for veganism to governments, institutions and the media and to support people in making changes. We educate public about animal rights and veganism. We campaign for the mainstreaming of veganism, eg: more vegan menu options in restaurants. We lobby and make submissions to government enquiries. We use the media to raise awareness about animal rights and veganism. We carry out research, such as what would happen if Australia went vegan. We provide services for vegans and vegans-in-progress. We provide a comprehensive event listing service, including nutrition seminars, cooking classes, films, dinners, picnics.
