As the host and first sponsor, the St. Louis Animal Rights Team considers the annual St. Louis VegFest event to be one of the most successful and visible events for sharing our mission and love for animals to the region.
The organizers of St. Louis VegFest are START members, and are pleased to be working with compassionate and like-minded local organizations and businesses to promote plant-based living and alternatives to animal products.
START is a not-for-profit educational/activist group, formed in 1985, and incorporated as a 501(c)(3) charitable organization in 1988. Our goals are to:
► Educate society about the rights of all species to live freely and die naturally
► Expose the harm and suffering caused by the denial of animals’ natural rights
► Promote the adoption of lifestyles compatible with the animal rights philosophy
► Promote the reform of social institutions to be compatible with animal rights
Thank you for joining START organizers and members in bringing St. Louis VegFest back for our 5th year!
