Are you vegan or vegetarian? If so why did you go veg?

I became veg at 16 for ethical reasons, and went vegan about 11 years ago after watching undercover video footage showing what happens to pigs in the animal agriculture industry. I now realize that a completely plant-based diet is crucial for human health and the very future of life on earth. It's amazing how the demand for vegan products has absolutely exploded in the past decade. The landscape is changing so fast - I know we are on the verge of a food revolution! Please feel free to message me with any questions you may have about the group or about veganism - ethical considerations, nutrition, etc. If I don't know the answer I can usually find someone who does. :)

What type of meetup events would you most enjoy?

I am up for pretty much anything!

Are you interested in hosting events or becoming an organizer?
