Hi. I'm Minku, and I'm vegan. I run an animal rescue, drive a pedicab, walk dogs, organize the Chicago Vegan Co-op (buying club), and spread the word about animal & human rights. And I like board games.

This member chose not to make their interests public.
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:
