Hi Vegan Lifers and Friends,
I hope this message finds you all well and happy.
A Vegan Life is a community for learning, socializing, support, and making new friends, based around a plant-based/vegan lifestyle. We have members who joined for different reasons, besides those mentioned above. Those include health, animals, environment, or a combination of these. We do our best to be a group that is a good fit for all of our members, no matter what your reason(s) for joining.
Many of you have expressed a desire to become or be more active and hands on for the benefit of animals. I am writing this to remind everyone that if you are interested in learning more about being active for animals, we also have a very active group, Animal Action Network (AAN), that would love for you to join. There is no pressure in the group to do more than you are comfortable with. The hope is that after meeting some of our active members, some of you might feel more encouraged and empowered to step a bit out of your comfort zone, if you would like to. We all stated someplace. There is no time frame or limit for AAN members to become more active, but if that is your desire, being part of a group is a great first step. Plus, the group could use some fresh and creative ideas of good ways to help our animals friends. You never know what great ideas might come to you when you are part a group of like minded folks. Being part of a team that is making a difference, is a great feeling.
It you think you might have something to contribute, or if you just want to watch from the side to see what activism is all about, this is the group for you:
Feel free to email me personally, if you have any questions or comments about Animal Action Network and/or A Vegan Life (or anything else). [address removed]
Thank you all for being part of A Vegan Life!

Did it give you something real, or could you taste
the pain of my death in its flavor?

Those of us who hear them, must help them to be heard.
