Award-winning public health nutritionist, 35-year vegan changemaker, and best-selling author Tracye McQuirter, MPH, is thrilled to announce the 10 Million Black Vegan Women Movement, a revolutionary public health intervention that will change the health paradigm of black women now and for generations to come. This initiative stands to be one of the most effective public health movements for black women in the country. Transform now. Visit: byanygreensnecessary.com McQuirter’s goal is to help one million black women a year go vegan over the next 10 years. The signature program includes a free 21-Day Vegan Fresh Start featuring online cooking classes, meal plans and prep guides, vegan recipes, grocery shopping lists, nutrition tips, expert guidance, and more, all with a community of black women going vegan together. The initiative also includes a 6-Week Vegan Transition course and an ongoing Group Coaching program, to help black women maintain their vegan lifestyles with ease and support. “Black women experience the highest rates of chronic diseases, including heart disease, stroke, diabetes and cancer, but most of these illnesses can be prevented and often reversed by eating healthy plant-based foods. We’ve seen the devastating impact these pre-existing conditions can have, especially during the pandemic. The 10 Million Black Vegan Women Movement gives black women the tools we need to take back control of our health,” said Tracye McQuirter, MPH. McQuirter created 10 Million Black Vegan Women after the overwhelming success of her 10,000 Black Vegan Women, where more than 15,000 women signed up. McQuirter surveyed more than 600 participants and the health benefits were unprecedented.
