What diet/lifestyle do you follow? For how long? Why?

Veg since 1991; vegan since 1993. I did it after one look at the photos in "Diet for a New America." I had no idea how much suffering was involved in using animals for food. It's almost like I was asleep. How could I not know?

What types of activities are you interested in for this meetup?

Eating together, of course, but also some service activities (like cooking for the homeless, or for kids), cooking classes, anything involving learning, and veg advocacy.

What is your favorite local veg-friendly restaurant?

My own kitchen!

Besides veg*nism, what three issues are you most passionate about?

I'm an atheist, socialist, feminist and environmentalist. Humanity is in crisis...time to get together and make some serious change, starting with ending poverty and hunger, and redefining "the good life."


Hi! I don't know who I am, but I know I love good vegan food and the company of other people who choose to eat this way.
