Theresa, welcome to the Anti-Fur Society Meet-up! I am so glad that you found us! I look forward to meeting you at FFF. Please let me know if there is anyway I can help as you learn veganism. Unlearning speciesism is the key; after that and learning a few facts all else comes naturally in time.
Theresa. We have a lot of members who are in a similar situation (not a lot of support at home). If you're interested, there are several other good veg meetup groups closer to Annapolis than we are. One is Meat Free in Frederick. Another is The Sophisticated Vegan in the DC area. There's also a Baltimore group but they don't seem to be very active. Alan
