A year ago I made my first trip to Colorado Springs with my husband. We were interested in moving here (from New York) but wanted to "check things out." As a relatively new vegan I was very curious about the plant-based and animal rights scene in town. With a little Googling I found this Meetup and instantly knew there was a community for me to join.
I became a member of this Meetup six months before I moved to the Springs. I visited in October to find a place to live and attended Vegan Drinks at Trinity hosted by Xavier and met so many kind, compassionate people. I moved here in December and started attending Meetup events right away. I was welcomed and wanted to be a part of the growing, generous community so I began to host events, too.
Lisa, our fearless founder, has helped me, and so many of you, feel connected to other vegans and vegetarians - to feel like we are part of a community. I cannot thank her, and the other group organizers, enough for building this community. And I am honored that Lisa has entrusted me with the Lead Organizer role to keep the momentum going.
I, along with Lisa and the other organizers, look forward to offering fun, creative events that support you on your vegan and vegetarian journey. We invite you to join us as we all explore healthy, plant-based living and how we might make the world kinder and gentler for animals.
Please take a look at the event calendar to find an activity just right for you. If you have event ideas, please simply reply to this email or email me directly and share your thoughts.
I look forward to meeting you at a Meetup soon!
