Finally, a group where vegans can get together to find and provide mutual support for various issues arising from their choice to live a vegan lifestyle! Members are encouraged to discuss their feelings and share their experience, strength, hope and solutions they've found regarding such issues as, "My family doesn't support my choice to no longer exploit animals and I feel hurt/frustrated/angry/afraid by this", "How do YOU handle dinners and events with non-vegan relatives/friends/co-workers?", "Dating/living with a non-vegan is bringing up uncomfortable feelings", "Sometimes I feel so alone in my vegan and animal rights beliefs and don't know where to turn for support", "Now that I'm vegan, I want to make a difference for animals but don't know where to start", "I'm engaged in animal rights activism and sometimes get frustrated and start to lose hope", "I'm a new vegan - what and where can I eat???" and so on. Hour-long biweekly meetings will be facilitated by group members on a rotating basis and meeting formats will vary from topic-driven to open-sharing, always within a framework of respectful listening and allowing group members the opportunity to share without interruption on various topics. With local support groups in existence for everything from broken hearts (literally) to survivors of alien abductions (I kid you not), we feel it's about time vegans have the opportunity to find support for the issues they frequently face as a true cultural minority! Please note: unlike other, more food-centered meetups, these are support group-style meetings and, in order to allow maximum attentiveness and participation, there will be no food or beverages served.
