Vegetarians in Virginia are working together to advertise their choice on the road with more than bumper stickers. A group of vegan and vegetarian associations are working together to propose a license plate design to the Virginia General Assembly in 2010. The proposed new plate was designed by Noah Scalin and is supported by Richmond Vegetarian Festival, Vegan Action and the Vegetarian Society of Virginia. Although this project has been in the works for several years, the plate is more than one year from production. Virginia Delegate Jennifer McClellan (D, 71st) will propose the plate this month to the Assembly; if approved, it would be available to motorists in April 2011.

    "The Year of the Vegan" is a diary of my challenges and triumphs during 2010 - a year in which I will not consume any animal products. This commitment is motivated by my disgust about the hidden and externalized environmental, social and societal  costs of our nation's food network. Join me considering what we eat, and why.

    This year is also a year of personal transitions - from graduate student and freelance writer living in rural southwestern Virginia to fully-employed DC resident.
