how did you hear about the boulder vegan meetup?

I saw it on an email I received about Meet Up groups in Boulder County.

what made you decide to go Vegan/ explore a more compassionate lifestyle?

I went to a Paul McCartney concert in the mid-90's. He played "Live and Let Die" and showed cows being led into the slaughter houses. It hit me so hard that I could no longer support the factory farm industry. I then went to March for the Animals in Washington D.C. with my daughter in 1996. That sealed the deal! I no longer wanted to ever support animal cruelty. I also have high cholesterol in my family. I am not willing to buy in to the pharmaceutical industry, so being a vegan has kept me healthy!

What kind of activities would you like to see the group participate in?

Love that you are doing potlucks. Thank you. Would also be fun to go out and support some of the restaurants that are trying to do it right (serving vegan dishes). And, maybe some of the brew pubs have vegan menus????? YAY!

on your veg journey, do you have specific challenges that you'd like help with

No answer yet

Introduction

I moved here from the high Sierra in CA three years ago. I have been a vegan for about 15 years. I am anxious to connect with like minded people who have a sincere passion for real food, compassion for animals, and a respect for our precious world.
