Main Street Vegan Academy is the brainchild of Victoria Moran, a longtime vegan and animal activist and the author of eleven books. Her latest, Main Street Vegan: Everything You Need to Know to Eat Healthfully and Live Compassionately in the Real World, inspired the formation of the Academy, training and certifying Vegan Lifestyle Coach/Educators in a 5-day, real-world intensive in New York City.

The program consists of courses on plant-based nutrition, animal rights and animal law, public speaking and media training, working with blended and transitional families, social networking, marketing, and more, taught by Victoria and a gifted faculty that includes MDs, RDs, authors, and noted experts in the field. In addition, each course includes field trips to NYC bastions of vegan shopping, dining, and culture. In its first year, MSVA has hosted students from across North America and from as far afield as Germany, Australia, and Qatar, comprising what graduate JL Fields, VLC, calls “a peaceful army” of vegan ambassadors.

Other MSV enterprises include the Main Street Vegan radio show/podcast on Unity.FM, and Main Street Vegan Productions, in preproduction with its first feature film. A percentage of proceeds from all projects goes to support animal charities.
