How did you hear about "Vegan Life Colorado" meetup group?

I searched for vegan meetup groups near me.

What draws you to a vegan group? (answer as simply or as detailed as you like)

I've never liked consuming animal products very much; I never liked bacon, or eggs, or seafood, or steak, or milk, etc. I think the only reason I consumed any of that stuff was because it was ubiquitous and seemingly unavoidable; I ate it out of habit more than anything. When I discovered how unethical the meat and dairy industries had become, it was very easy for me to give it all up completely. It's a bonus that it also happens to be a healthier diet, but even if it was a less healthy diet, my conscience would still compel me to be vegan; it would never be acceptable to me to have animals enslaved and tortured for my own selfish pleasure and comfort. Is it poetic justice that people are killing themselves on a diet of tortured flesh? You reap what you sow. That being said, most people are completely ignorant of what's being sown, and it's more the failure of our government that inhumane practices are allowed and widespread.

What kind of activities would you like to see the group participate in, if you have anything specific you would like to do (note that our members are welcome to suggest and schedule vegan friendly events for consideration by our organizers)?

Anything social, really. Eating, drinking, hiking, dancing, whatever.

NOTE: We only require a "YES" RSVP if you plan to attend a gathering. Please don't RSVP "NO" to gatherings you don't plan to attend. "NO" RSVPs only create email for organizers. Only RSVP "NO" when you need to cancel a "YES". Make sense? Thanks!
