I searched for local vegan meetups via good ol' Google.
I found many reasons to switch to a vegan lifestyle, most of which stem from an unwillingness to support current agricultural practices, because although veganism makes the most sense to me from a health perspective, I also simply just can NOT support the inhumanity and ecological impacts of factory style farming today. Once I discovered what was really going on in the industry, it became pretty clear to me that the vegan option was the only one for me. Some things just can't be unseen.
I guess I signed up imagining potlucks, restaurant meetups, hikes, and hopefully some awareness activities that I could get involved in.
Hello, I'm Ash and I'm just excited to find a way to tap into the local vegan community! I'm a fairly new vegan, and it can feel a little socially isolating so just looking to make some new like-minded friends to play and eat with.
