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

My wife discovered this group while we were considering our Thanksgiving options and the Thanksgiving event was an impressive introduction to the group.

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

I went straight from omnivorous diet to a vegan diet immediately upon randomly discovering a very small slice of the vegan literature on the internet in college 13 years ago. I literally became vegan on the day that I was introduced to the term "vegan" and it is one of the best decisions I've made and one I am proud of. At the time, I didn't know any other vegans or vegetarians so I got a lot of experience early being hassled by family and friends and I think that process helped me solidify and clarify my motivations for being vegan. There are so many reasons to go vegan and it is so much easier to discover well-articulated arguments for it now. I am excited about the future of veganism.

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)?

Our children are very active and any activities that provide an outlet for squirmy energy are wonderful :)

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!

I understand.


Hello, my name is Jason and I've been a vegan for 13 years. I have a lot of respect for the choice to go vegan and I'm interested in being part of the vegan community along with my wife, Vicki, and kids, Ben and Adelle, who are all vegan as well!
