Engage with other vegans (and those aspiring) in the DC metropolitan area. Share ideas/thoughts on being or going vegan including recipes, restaurants, vegan products, activities, related topics, its philosophy, or simply make friends who share your interests.
The group is sponsored by the Vegetarian Society of DC (VSDC, www.vsdc.org), who provides the enabling structure and pays the regular Meetup fee so that individual members of the group do not have to pay anything. A number of the group's activities will be organized by VSDC (whose events are always planned vegan).
Activities will be community-building to support those already on the path to an all-plant (vegan) diet as well as educational to provide people with the information and insight to take the next step or become more involved. As part of VSDC's philosophy for positive encouragement and inclusiveness, everyone is welcome to attend, regardless of background and where they are on the path to an all-plant diet).
