The 10,000 Black Vegan Women movement, which is set to launch on Monday, has met its target goal for launch.
The program is founded by award-winning public health nutritionist and author Tracye McQuirter, MPH. It features a 21-day program filled with cooking videos, meal plans, vegan recipes, grocery shopping lists, meal prep guides, and nutrition tips.
“I’m beyond thrilled that 10,000 women (and counting) have signed up for the 10,000 Black Vegan Women movement,” McQuirter said in a statement. “With all that’s going on in this country and the world right now, it’s no small act that 10,000 Black women are taking this time to focus on their health.”
McQuirter says she was moved to launch the program in order to help the Black community, which faces the highest rates of chronic diseases in the U.S.
“I want to truly change the health paradigm of black women,” said McQuirter. “We are leaders in so many progressive ways, but we are in a crisis when it comes to our health. And while there are many reasons for this, we have the power to take back control of our health. It’s about our greens, not our genes! Eating affordable, nutritious, and delicious plant-based foods is one of the best ways for us to get healthy now and for the rest of our lives.”
