One question we are probably all too familiar with is "Soooo...why are you vegan?" Sharing our story about our vegan transition, wherever we are on the journey, helps us connect with both fellow vegan and non-vegans (or as I like to say, pre-gans). I find it a powerful tool to open the minds and hearts of others and a joy to share this part of my life experience. I invite you to come and meet other like-minded folk, share your vegan story, and discuss tools on how to communicate effectively.
I intend for this meetup to be an engaging group discussion. I hope you come prepared for the opportunity to meet new people (which you may not have at a regular restaurant meetup), share your story and truly engage with those around you. Please be respectful of others; nobody likes the vegan police!
Please note that Portia's Cafe closes at 3pm on Sundays, so if you would like food/refreshments come early :) Thank you so much, Portia, for allowing us to use your cafe space!
I believe that together we can build a strong vegan community here in Columbus but only if we take the time to connect with each other. I look forward to meeting you and learning about your vegan transformation!
