Here’s to all the kids of color who were teased for bringing “weird” lunches in elementary school, and found 20 years later that white people now think it’s hip.
Portland Vegans of Color is working on a cookzine to push back against the lack of authentic diversity to complete appropriation of non-white cultures by white authors in vegan cookbooks.
Recognizing that many people of color come from mixed ethnicities, backgrounds, and/or have experienced varying degrees of assimilation, we ask that the recipes be significant to you and/or your family and reflect the comfort, celebration, or everyday food from your personal heritage. Let’s remind the white-dominated vegan community that we are here, and that we will make and share our traditional food ourselves.
