The Main Street Vegan Podcast is Back!
We're happy to share that the Main Street Vegan Podcast with our own Victoria Moran is back by popular demand, featuring in-depth interviews with vegan luminaries and other folks who have information we wouldn't hear elsewhere. Listen wherever you get your podcasts.
In addition, Victoria has launched a new livestream, The Main Street Vegan Salon, on UnchainedTV. This is a celebrity talk show recorded live in a studio in Manhattan's Theater District. You can find UnchainedTV, Jane Velez-Mitchell's animal rights streaming network, online, or get the free app for access to news, talk shows, movies, reality shows and more, all with a focus on animal rights and compassionate living.
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.
