I just searched for vegan groups on Meetup.com.
Simply, I'm vegan and would like to meet other vegans.
They are all important, but I would say for me, the order is animal welfare, humanitarian efforts, the planet, and health.
I had been vegetarian for some time, but did not realize until a few years ago all that went on in the dairy and egg industries, and in addition to that, finally came around to the idea that animals are not ours to exploit in any way.
I moved to San Diego at the end of 2011 and have been completely vegan since October of 2011 after being vegetarian for eight years.
