Meet other vegans in the DC area. Share ideas/thoughts on the philosophy of being vegan, recipes, new restaurants, vegan products, related topics, 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) and meetup members are strongly encouraged to organize additional events of interest.
Activities will be community-building to support those already on the path to an all-plant-based 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 where they are on the path to a completely plant-based diet) but all events are planned vegan.
