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

I found you on Meetup.

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

I have wanted to be a vegetarian since the 3rd grade, when we read Charlotte's Web. I became a vegetarian in the 7th grade and since then, I have done a lot of research on why people choose a vegetarian lifestyle. I feel compassion for the animals, our planet, and the people who feel stuck in the "SAD" diet. Food is not meant to be artificial, animals are not meant to live in crowded, disease filled conditions, humans are not meant to drink the milk of other animals, and our world cannot sustain the abuse of the masses of animals that need to be fed, to be housed, and to create waste. Humans should not play GOD with the creation and direction of animal life.

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)?

Potlucks, recipe sharing, and restaurant sharing

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!



Hi all! I moved to Colorado from New Jersey two years ago and I have been a vegetarian for 15 years. I have been a transitioning vegan for a few years now. Currently, I am a vegan. I am learning all kinds of awesome resources and recipes.
