What type of activism do you enjoy? (i.e. leafletting, tabling, hosting film screenings, letter writing, restaurant outreach, etc...)

Tabling, and "soft" activism, like bake sales. Even though I consider myself shy, I love talking with people about animal issues, especially veganism. The meat, dairy, and egg "industries" are abominations, and they take a huge toll not only on non-human animals but on people as well. They wreak havoc on human health, and they are a huge contributor to global climate change. I like to write about animal issues as well.

Why do you want to help animals?

They need and deserve our support. They give so much to humans, and unfortunately, what they receive back usually is not kind or positive. Like being tortured, slaughtered, and eaten, for instance.

When do you have availability so that other members can reach you to pair up to do activism?

I compulsively check my e-mail day and night, so that's the best way to reach me. I'm available for volunteering on weeknights (work allowing) and weekends.

Introduction

Animals have always made me happy, and a few years ago, I decided I needed to do more to pay them back for that. I switched from vegetarian (which I'd been since the age of 15) to vegan (YAY!), and I joined this Meetup. This group rocks.

What Lisa R. is saying about this Meetup Group

Great folks who are passionate about issues that really matter.
