 ‘Brought vegan living into the spotlight’

According to PETA, Brown with her infectious joy and one-of-a-kind charm, has “brought vegan living into the spotlight and compassion for animals into the hearts of millions of people around the world.”

In an Instagram post, the vegan charity also wrote that Brown is “a hugely influential figure in the Black vegan community, helping to dismantle the harmful stereotype that being vegan is “for white people”

Previous Person of the Year winners include Joaquin Phoenix, Pope Francis, Oprah Winfrey, and Anjelica Huston.

Company of the Year

PETA also honoured vegan advocate and mother of Billie Eilish, Maggie Baird, for her charitable organization Support+Feed.

The vegan organization won the “2020 Company of the Year” award.

It was founded during the pandemic to fund and coordinate food deliveries from vegan restaurants to organizations serving people with food insecurity thereby helping support the restaurant industry and vulnerable people alike.

“Support + Feed and Tabitha Brown are both changing the world, one delicious vegan meal at a time,” Newkirk said in a statement.

 “PETA is honoring them both for being glimmers of vegan hope and joy in the weirdest year ever!”
