VSDC is an independent affiliate of the North American Vegetarian Society (NAVS), founded in 1974. Members of their affiliates qualify for half-price NAVS membership, which includes a subscription to their Vegetarian Voice magazine, a 10% discount on books and merchandise, and reduced price for their annual Vegetarian Summerfest conference.
Although VSDC is affiliated with those five organizations, we remain independent, answering only to our own members.
Founded in 1927, the Veg Society of the District of Columbia (VSDC) is the nation’s oldest continuously operating veg society. VSDC is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that promotes the tremendous benefits of a vegan diet & lifestyle through education, community-building, and social activities throughout the DC metro area.
