Vonettia is the found of the Black Vegan Experience (BVE). The vision of the BVE is to educate people of color on the importance of plant-based living and to become the bridge for otherwise disconnected communities to connect and ensure diversity. By organizing multi-city events and by messaging across the US, one state at a time, the BVE seeks to remove the social stereotypes surrounding Black culture and Veganism and have a blast along the way. The Black Vegan Experience team reach out to adults, children, military personnel (Vonettia's spouse is a retired combat veteran), non-Vegans, youth, LGBTQ, and other marginalized groups.

about us

The Compassion Consortium is a non-sectarian center. We offer well-being resources, spiritual guidance, support, and community fellowship to Vegans, Vegetarians, animal rights activists, animal lovers, and all humans who care about and advocate for animals and the planet.


We recognize that many people do not see their deeply rooted compassion for all creatures reflected in houses of worship or spiritual centers; some people have even left faith traditions after seeing animals excluded from the level of mercy they deserve; in many cases, they're even denied the possession of a soul.

The Compassion Consortium is here to supplement this "missing piece" for persons who are part of another religious or spiritual community and those who are not affiliated ("nones") or identify as secular.
