Tampa Bay Veg Fest is an annual event that welcomes the Tampa community and beyond to celebrate all things plant-based and vegan.

The event has been coordinated by Florida Voices for Animals for almost 10 years! Featuring nationally renowned speakers, 140+ veg-friendly vendors/exhibitors, animal rescue groups, vegan food, raw/cooking demonstrations, humane education, live music and entertainment, yoga classes, and activities for children and families, the event offers a diverse experience for all to learn about healthy, compassionate, and environmentally sustainable living. 

​The Northeast Florida Veg Fest is presented by The Girls Gone Green! 

The Girls Gone Green is a nonprofit organization dedicated to exploring environmental, animal and health issues. We host several events and campaigns including Northeast Florida Veg Fest and No Meat March.

We have presented the NEFL Veg Fest for seven years with each one showing tremendous success and growth. We truly feel that the very first Veg Fest brought together a community interested in the three things we stand for - a healthy planet, animal compassion and a healthy lifestyle. 

The First-Ever Veg Fest in Southwest Florida occurred in January 2017 at Centennial Park in downtown Fort Myers. Although the weather in the morning was cold and rainy, we had 8-10,000 attendees visit our booths. In year two, we skyrocketed to 15-18,000! 

From its inception, SWFL Veg Fest has been a team effort. The core team formed quickly and has extraordinary talent. This group demonstrates what a small group of passionate people can do!

We are grateful to the many other volunteers who help with planning and event day activities and made the fest what it is. Do YOU want to volunteer for SWFL Veg Fest?  Volunteer signup will be available online soon!

Central Florida Veg Fest is an exciting day of colorful and educational exhibits andactivities! Admission is FREE! Veg Fest is a family-friendly, dog-friendly, alcohol-free, and smoke-free event. Veg Fest, now in its 14th year, is one of the biggest and best vegan festivals in the country!

Gainesville VegFest is presented by North Florida Veg Events, Inc. and is a celebration of a healthy, sustainable and compassionate way of life. Our hope is for people of all ages to have fun and learn about the many ways to improve health, lessen our impact on the environment, and reduce animal suffering. This free, family-friendly event includes speakers, cooking demonstrations, yoga, vendors, educational booths, music, children’s activities, and much more.

Running to be your District 7 School Board Member

Education Activist

I am running for School Board because I am sick of all these tyrants and their nonsense.  I have had enough of their indoctrination and lack of passion to help ALL communities.  I am outraged that two of the current school board members have worked at 2 of the WORST schools in the state of Florida and these schools continue to fail. Their laziness, lack of innovation, and incompetence are putting kids at risk.  Education is how we fix all problems from poverty to crime and everything in between.  While it may be comfortable to stay at home and complain, I am on this planet to serve the Lord and this is why I am running for Pinellas County School Board District 7.

Challenging the legal thinghood of autonomous nonhuman animals

The only organization in the US dedicated solely to securing rights for nonhuman animals. #FreeHappy #FreeMinnie #RumbleForRights


Kids face so many everyday challenges. They deal with bullying and low self- esteem, in addition to witnessing the inhumane treatment of animals. Happy Kids-Happy Pets created story cards to teach and enhance the character of children and to educate them on caring for a dog or cat.

Our Mission is to see a world where children experience peace, kindness, integrity, forgiveness and compassion for themselves and others; where children and animals grow up happy and safe – that’s what Happy Kids-Happy Pets is all about.

We have 2 FUN educational APPS, waiting just for your child!   New project is  Caring for all Beings

Little Bear Sanctuary’s mission is to provide much-needed healthy, compassionate permanent housing to abandoned, abused and/or neglected farm animals. We are a true sanctuary, our animals are never kept in pens or cages and are allowed to roam free in their natural environment. 

We educate the public about pigs as pets and the myth of the “mini pig.”

🏠| Home to over 300 rescued animals 🐷

Rooterville Animal Sanctuary is located in Melrose, FL. Rooterville provides a safe and compassionate refuge to rescued farm animals. These precious farm animals are just like us in that everyone is an individual who deserves to be loved.  We provide them all with a healthy diet and comfy home filled with love and good care. Our residents, which we kindly refer to as ambassadors, are the lucky ones who have come here from all sorts of situations but primarily as the result of abuse, abandonment, and neglect.  They include pot-bellied pigs, farm pigs, cows, goats, turkeys, mini-horses, horses, chickens and a few dogs and cats.  (Ginger and Gracie the Chiweenie sisters are the BOSSES of Rooterville and steal the show from the pigs!) Rooterville Animal Sanctuary currently provides a beautiful home to hundreds of rescued animals.

Rooterville was founded by Elaine West in 2004 to care for the many unwanted, abandoned, and abused pot-bellied pigs in need of a safe and loving home. Unfortunately, most animal control agencies or Humane Societies will not take in unwanted pet pigs, so many of these former pets end up meeting a gruesome fate simply because no one is there to help. Since our humble beginnings, Rooterville Animal Sanctuary has grown from 5 to over 20-acres and provides rescue, care, and a permanent home for hundreds of rescued farm animals of all types.
