Leila Sleiman - Pittsburgh VegFest

Leila Sleiman and Natalie Fristick- Pittsburgh VegFest

Date grant awarded: 10/07/2017

Justice for Animals is a small local nonprofit organization in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania that was started by long time activists and vegans Leila Sleiman & Natalie Fristick to promote a cruelty-free and compassionate lifestyle.

Pittsburgh VegFest is an event born out of the desire to expand this cause to all of Steel City and beyond! Thousands from Pittsburgh and the surrounding areas come to this festival, an annual FREE outdoor festival that is quickly becoming a “go-to” summer event in Pittsburgh. Winning “Best Food Festival” last year above their meat serving counterparts only solidifies the need for a healthy, compassionate VegFest in Western Pennsylvania.
