The Vegan Museum opened on February 1, 2017; the first museum of its kind in the world. It has been displayed in over 30 institutions across Chicago, moving to a different venue every 2-3 months, to stay accessible and attract new visitors. The Vegan Museum has hosted 44 events, 26 speakers, 8 food demos, 7 documentaries, 2 story map presentations, and 1 children’s book reading!

The exhibit consists of 12 large panels, which guide the viewer through (vegan!) bite-sized pieces of information about vegan history, across time and culture. Walk-throughs and events are free to attend, yet we greatly appreciate any donations to TVM. Our mission is to continually discover and share this amazing, ongoing historical movement.

Founded to provide information and support to people interested in a vegetarian/vegan lifestyle and to introduce them to a wide array of delicious foods. Our all-volunteer organization holds monthly meetings from September to June; each meeting begins with a potluck supper that is followed by an educational program. Members receive a copy of VIM News, the monthly newsletter that is a rich source of up-to-date information. It includes recipes, book reviews, and a calendar of upcoming events. Special events include presentations by nationally-known speakers.

People join VIM for important reasons – concern for their health, the animals, world hunger, and the environment.

Dedicated to helping build a nonviolent mass movement for all species liberation. We do this through a variety of strategies, including:

  • publishing digital content for public education and outreach,

  • building bridges with other groups and movements,

  • building a strong grassroots activist community,

  • rescuing animals from exploitative industries and broadcasting their stories.

Our public education and outreach focuses primarily on publishing quality content on our website and syndicating that content through our expansive social media reach. We attract over one million unique website visitors every year and average about 800,000 impressions each month on Facebook. Most importantly, our content provides our members and followers with frequent and meaningful ways to take action on important issues.

Free from Harm participates in a wide variety of vegan festivals, conferences and activism events related to climate justice, sustainability, health and wellness, intersectionality, and animal ethics. Our community outreach serves three important goals:

  • to grow and empower our local activist community,

  • to build public support,

  • to organize frontline actions that capture the attention of the media and the public and apply pressure on targeted decisionmakers who have the power to meet our demands.

In the city that once promoted itself as the slaughter capital of the world, we recognize that the work we do here can have important repercussions elsewhere, and we are eager to share ideas and resources with other activist communities nationwide.

Our rescue and rehabilitation work is focused specifically on rescuing, treating and finding suitable homes for abandoned or escaped domestic birds in the Chicago area. Most of our rescues are chickens who have escaped local slaughterhouses or “backyard chickens” who have been abandoned by their owners. Other domestic species we have rescued include ducks, guinea fowl, quail and pigeons. In addition, we have assisted in rescuing orphaned chicks from school chick hatching projects and providing alternatives for chick hatching programs. Each of our rescues has a unique survival story that we broadcast to the world.

La Colina Linda (LCL) Farm sits atop one of the many lovely hills in the Shawnee National Forest and is five minutes away from Giant City State Park. We started developing the farm in 2012 by creating vegetable beds and the beginnings of a food forest.
