“If I have seen a little further it is by standing on the shoulders of Giants.” – Sir Isaac Newton

To really make the world better, we need to know about and remember all the pioneers who came about before us. Kay Stepkin’s National Vegetarian Museum exhibits are certainly doing this, and is important in helping to bring us to a more caring world.

As plant-based eating and animal rights take great strides forward in the Information Age, we need to know where we came from, and the National Vegetarian Museum is there to provide that knowledge.

Looking at vegetarianism in Chicago and beyond, the Museum is a growing marvel that will let future generations know that even in the 'hog butcher for the world,' voices of compassion rang out, laying the foundation for today's vegan revolution.”

The National Vegetarian Museum provides an invaluable service to the community by providing a big picture view of vegetarianism in our culture’s past and present — one which has all too often been marginalized.
