With support from Compassion Over Killing, several vegans in the Frederick, Md., area started VegFrederick, a local web movement to bring awareness to their community and resources for area restaurants to add more meat-free options to their menus. Lara Sanders, one of the organizers, comments, “We started VegFrederick as a way to help the community tackle a major social issue but in a localized way.” The hyperlocal site offers a list of vegetarian and vegan restaurants in the area, tips on the best grocery stores, features on products, and more. Compassion Over Killing also sponsors local sites in Washington DC, Austin, Baltimore, and Portland.
