For more than 50 years, September 15 to October 15 has marked the celebration of Latinx Heritage Month, which commemorates the history, cultures, and contributions of Latinx Americans. Through the growing effort to decolonize our food systems and connect to the indigenous heritage of the Hispanic community, the number of Latinx vegans has exploded in the past decade. So we sought out some of our favorite Instagram accounts that promote the diversity of today’s vegan community and that dispel any ideas of a white-washed vegan movement. So whether you’re looking for low-waste living tips, veganized traditional dishes, or cruelty-free beauty inspo, you’ll find something to love on these 35 accounts run by Latinx vegans from all walks of life.

What happens when a Mexican chef from California relocates across the country all the way to The Big Apple? He brings a little Chicano flavor with him, of course. Ramos’ feed features his culinary handiwork, including dishes like tacos de champiñones al ajillo, frijoles charros, and activated-charcoal empanadas (some of which can be snatched up by hungry New Yorkers at pop-ups he holds around the city). But don’t sleep on more content such as NYC vegan eats, hot new products, and his latest business venture: elevated plant-based charcuterie.
