Update: In-Person Conference CANCELED
Hi everyone, unfortunately, despite planning for months, we are unable to afford the updated fee for the venue and we do not want to make people choose between events since we are unable to find a new venue at a time that does not conflict with BVF. We are unable to change the date to another weekend or even month because we had people flying in from out of state and country and early August was the only time that suited everyone to be able to come together.
Therefore, we will be canceling the in-person VoC Conference in August, which was to be held on August 11th in Brooklyn, to avoid any event conflicts.
We hope y'all will still have a wonderful time at BVF and help make it a success once again and in the many more years to come.
Because we still want to be sure that VoC have a shared platform to build community with one another, we will, instead be hosting a virtual conference.
Details to be announced as soon as everything is in place.
Because of this change, we'd like to offer refunds to anyone that donated towards the in-person event. If you'd like a refund, please contact us by June 15th, 2019. Otherwise, your donations will go towards paying for a professional virtual conference and associated costs, including an ASL interpreter, across several days, so that it is free and accessible to as many people as possible.
Thank you for your support. We appreciate your understanding with this unfortunate last minute change.
We're still excited to work with a virtual platform and hope this will bring even more people together - vegan potluck conference party from your own living rooms, anyone? :D
Black VegFest will be hosting the VoC Conference this year during their weekend event in August!
The VoC Conference will be on August 11th, 2-5pm at Black VegFest in Brooklyn, NY (blackvegfest.org).
