Anyone can join, whether or not you're a vegan, vegetarian, animal welfare activist, green environmentalist, intellectual, or nerd.  All you need is an interest in what we do.


You can see our calendar for animal welfare / animal rights relevant events and nerdy and veg*n stuff:


We get together for a variety of events. They can be for social, ethical, and / or intellectual purposes. We encourage all members to suggest event ideas, on the Message board, or at a meeting. Some events we have include:

1.  Potlucks
2.  Socials at restaurants, bars, or coffee shops
3.  Activism - volunteering at vegan soup kitchens, leafleting, protests
4.  Literature discussion (generally genre or author specific)
5.  Other topic based intellectual discussion / debate (i.e. ethics, psychology, philosophy, etc.)
6.  Vegan cooking classes

As you can see, some events aren't inherently veg*n related, and some aren't inherently intellectual. We welcome a broad range of members.


Here are some thoughts about discourse, debate, and animal welfare, as they relate to this group:

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
