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

From Jay Senderak at a Chomp event

What made you decide to go vegan or try veganism, and explore a more compassionate, healthy lifestyle (answer as simply or as detailed as you like)?

I have been vegetarian since I was about 13 because it just 'felt wrong' to be eating animals. Over the years I have learned more & more about the cruel treatment of dairy cows so I finally became completely vegan about 5 or 6 years ago. There are many reasons to be vegan: ethical, spiritual, environmental, etc... I don't believe that humans are necessarily superior beings & no sentient being should be subjected to the kind of torture and murder that so many creatures in this world are...

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)?

I'm pretty open to whatever activities are presented. I enjoy potluck dinners and maybe doing some protesting\leafleting etc...

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!
