The Home for Your Vegan Community

Coming Soon: A Vibrant Community Center

for Vegans and Vegan-Curious People


Would you like to meet other vegans? Are you exploring going more in the direction of plant-based and could you use some support? Would you like to access live virtual programming with like-minded people about topics that interest you, to get support from a welcoming community? Find all the latest and best vegan and cruelty-free products and services?

We are building Root Riot to be a 24-hour community center for vegan and the vegan-curious to share, learn, teach and grow together in a friendly, supportive and troll-free space.

ROOT RIOT Is Your Home for Vegan Community, Culture and Connection.

ROOT RIOT is conceived as a welcoming, highly interactive, friendly and dynamic space where visitors can discover and share thoughts and inspiration about all aspects of vegan philosophy, food, health, news, politics and culture. ROOT RIOT is a place to find activism, stories, commentary, conversation, art, virtual gatherings and more to help create deeper support for those doing good in the world. 


At ROOT RIOT, you will be able to:

Share your thoughts in conversations with a wide range of vegans and vegan-curious folks from around the world in our PUBLIC SQUARE.


Stay current with what is happening in the vegan culinary scene in our FOOD & CULTURE section, where you can also get access to tons of free recipes, food ideas and lifestyle tips;

Scroll through our vegan ROOT RIOT MARKETPLACE, where you can check out cruelty-free products and services of dozens of great indie businesses and connect with lots of  nonprofits serving the animals, the planet and the greater good.


Stop in THE ARENA to join our live virtual gatherings with compassionate people from around the world, take live online classes, workshops, networking sessions, demos and enjoy concerts and performances and so much more.

THE LITTLE FREE PLANT POWERED PANTRY (LFPPP) is a side project of ROOT RIOT that is giving away hundreds of dollars worth of free groceries each month from a small pantry in the front yard of Marla and John's Berwyn, Illinois home. We're working to expand LFPPP to locations across the US and the world.


Root Riot is committed to be a Troll Free Zone.
One of the greatest frustrations when discussing the vegan diet and lifestyle is the hyperabundance of obnoxious anti-vegan trolls who have nothing positive to add to the world and spend their time and energy criticizing those of us who do.

We are taking serious steps to block these dead-minded losers from polluting our conversations  with their useless and hateful words. So the space we provide will be a safe place for you to learn, share, discuss and help build our vibrant and compassionate community.

Sign up for our mailing list to keep up with our progress in creating this new community center.
