The Ultimate Guide to Black-Owned Vegan Restaurants

Animal Equality supports racial equality and stands in solidarity with the Black community and alongside those advocating to end injustice.

In addition to voting for candidates who will enact change, supporting organizations in the movement, and sharing information, a simple way you can champion for Black livelihoods is by supporting Black-owned businesses, too. That’s why we’ve compiled a list of Black-owned, plant-based restaurants across the country! Are we missing something? Please let us know in the comments and we’ll do our best to add the business to this list.
