The original Vegans Of Colour UK. The UK's first platform for BIPOC vegans. Created in 2018 as a Facebook group by Jude Coupe and Eshe Kiama Zuri as a safe space for BIPOC vegans across the UK. The group was originally Manchester BAME Vegans. The Facebook page and Instagram account were set up later that year as a place to platform BIPOC vegan businesses across the UK.
