Austin has a great vegan and vegetarian community, and also a great community of animal activists and pet rescue groups. This is a group for vegans and vegetarians (and omnivores as well) who want to get involved with the community.
At each meeting we will have a roundtable discussion on upcoming activities and events in Austin, such as the various vegan bake sales, the circus protest in August, the vegetarian chili cook-off in November, and Texas VegFest in April.
Whenever possible we'll have the organizers for those events on hand to give us information and let us know what they need help with. In between we'll also talk about ways to get involved on a more daily or weekly basis.
