Hi! I'm a vegan mom with a vegan toddler boy. My husband and I are both vegan and looking to expand our network of vegan friends for us and our son.
Vegan - for the animals. I don't feel we have the right to take other's lives to meet our tastes. It's not necessary for survival, not even optimal, and should be illegal. Would we allow eating each other if human flesh happened to be tasty? What makes eating other sentient beings any different?
Vegetarian for 21 years, vegan for 12.
Meet other vegans in the area, and expose our son to other vegan children.
Hi Josie, Thanks for joining the Triangle Dances of Universal Peace Meetup. So glad you joined us. Hope to see you soon at one of our Dances. Namaste!
Hey Josie, it's me, Wren! Do you want to hang out sometime? I have one class this semester and am (possibly) studying for the GRE, but otherwise free! I'm in need of hanging out with some like-minded folks who live in the area. I need community!!!
Welcome to the group, Josie! (Sorry it's taken me so long to say so; I'm hopelessly behind in this regard!) We've had a good number of members join recently that have young infants, so hopefully you will feel right at home. I'd love to add some meetups for parents with kids under 12 months; feel free to suggest a meetup if I'm moving too slow! And of course, don't hesitate to ask questions, make suggestions, etc., as this is a very collaborative group. Thanks and welcome!
Ho Josie! I'm glad you joined our group and hope to meet you soon! I also have 2 young children, though a bit older than yours. Mindful parenting is a very strong interest of mine. Would love to connect at some point!
I have been involved in animal issues in our state for 5 years. Nice to see another advocate here.
Welcome, Josie, I am a new member, too. I am enjoying Earthkeepers articles and videos. Looking forward to sharing and caring.
Hi Josie, Welcome. I'm an Old Hippie myself. Nice to have you join us. Hope you find enjoyable things to do here.
Greetings! What a cute little guy!
