Founded in 2010, we are a social group of vegans, vegetarians, and omnivores interested in a vegan diet, living in and around the Louisville area.

Our purpose is to promote a peaceful, sustainable vegan lifestyle, with a focus on animal rights, human health, and the environment.


Our goal is to come together monthly/bi-monthly to support, promote, and share the joys of veganism.


In the past and hopefully to continue in the future are such events we have held: - Vegan potlucks - Dining out events - Farm Sanctuary's Walk for Farm Animals - Bake sales and "dessert parties" - Community meetings with discussion topics - Book club


We can also be found on Twitter, Facebook, and have our own website:
