Boston Thoughtful World-Transforming Abolitionist Vegan Movers and Shakers
If you are anything else, you should join the Boston Vegetarian Meetup
If you seek to transform the public world as a vegan mover and shaker, AND if you have a proven track record of engaging the public or doing serious research on any of a range of sociological, political, economic, or psychological topics related to such world transformation, and IF your concern is the ABOLITION of animal oppression by humans (whatever the timeframe) AND you believe that there are "intelligent evidence-based interventions" which can HELP to effect (bring about) that historical outcome, this is for you.
We don't serve alcohol, smoke, or listen to loud music at our social meetings.
We THINK together, we SHARE our research on social transformations that are EXPLICITLY RELATED TO vegan values (and not peripheral to them, such as mere 'social change' in itself or orthogonal values).
Our working projects will include local, regional, national, and international efforts on (a) World Vegetarian Day and (b) World/International Vegan Day AND (c) Vegetarian Awareness Month. We will exchange with the IVU (International Vegetarian Union, which has a biennial World Vegetarian Congress), VUNA (Vegetarian Union of North America), NAVS (North American Vegetarian Society, which has an annual Vegetarian Summerfest), SERV (Society of Ethical and Religious Vegetarians), VRG (Vegetarian Resource Group), and VRC (Vegetarian Resource Center).
We will seek to engage vegetarian and vegan groups on vegan and abolitionist terms so that greater local, regional, national, continental, and international dialogue and effective abolitionist action can be achieved.
We will gather socially at educationally edifying all-vegan events AND for ad hoc work groups that engage any total or partial efforts to achieve our goals of a kinder, cruelty-free world in which all animal agriculture has been abolished voluntarily by our human species.
Additional topics for ad hoc working groups include:
Vegans avoid using animal products and see sentient animals as persons.
Joyous memories without use of animal products (such as gelatin in film)
Global Village Fruit develops vegan-consistent superfruit supply chains.
Free audio interviews of vegans who actively make a difference today
