We are making ten awards of $1000 each to “Unsung Vegan Heroes”

Unsung Vegan Heroes work tirelessly and passionately as a voice for animals.  They receive little if any recognition or glory for their work, yet they are unstoppable in their commitment to a more compassionate world for all beings.

The Awards are named in memory of Lisa Shapiro, a 2014 Unsung Vegan Hero Winner who passed away in June 2015 at the age of 50. Lisa was a fierce advocate for animals. Her legacy includes organizing hundreds of vegan events in her community, building and promoting vegan lifestyle brands and inspiring and mentoring hundreds of new vegans.

  Nominations are open July 12-August 12, 2015.  A diverse panel of judges representing a cross section of organizations and perspectives will determine the winners.
