How did you find out about this group?

I found out about this group while doing some online research about vegan groups in the valley.

What kinds of activities, related to this group's topics, would you like to participate in or help organize? If you think of ideas later, log in and let us know!

Educational seminars, vegan potlucks, and countless other activities.

What happened in your life to bring about your interest in the veg/vegan lifestyle.

When I was kid, my brother won an adorable, curious, intelligent, pink pig from a local fair. My siblings and I quickly fell in love with twoey (two was the lucky number that brought her home) and throughout the winter we developed a unique and intimate relationship with her. The following spring my parents made the decision to "get their moneys worth" and slaughter her so that we could have pork chops and bacon and all that "good stuff". The moment they pulled the trigger I realized what a twisted idea eating animals is. Now we all know that a habit and lifestyle like that can't be broken easily, so after a short break from eating meat I quickly returned to my carnivorous ways. With a guilty conscience I ate meat for the next 8 or so years, until one day, at the age of 19, I had an "epiphany" that reopened my eyes to how horrible it is to take a life for palate pleasure. I've been vegetarian ever since, and vegan for the past two years. I'm never going back!

Introduction

My name's Coniah Boda and I'm a music producer, wildlife photographer, and most importantly an abolitionist vegan. Originally from the Boston area, I moved to Grand Junction with my family about a decade ago and have fallen in love with this place!
