Are you currently a vegetarian/vegan?

Went veg-lacto-ovo in 81, vegan in 85. Why; It included self interests like health, but mostly for reasons grater than my self. Advocacy for non human animals AR/AL, earth, hunger/food resource, are the altruistic motivations of why I'm vegan 4 life

How long have you been interested in the veg lifestyle?

About 30 years ago, I met a vegetarian & also started hearing about it on WBEZ. Interviews with environmentalists, vegetarians & animal rights groups. Also a program called New Dementions would talk to it a lot. WBEZ was far better in early 80's.

What types of activities are you interested in doing with this group?

networking, advocacy for both human and nonhuman animals, including impact of human activity on our earth & all of us animals on it. I'm currently working on climate change; Chicago Climate Action on Sat Oct 24. See;


I look foreword to meeting other AR folks in western suburbs.
