Have you read the About Us page ( http://www.meetup.com/vegantucson/about/ ) and are aware this group is for people who are, or are seriously transitioning to becoming, vegan for ethical reasons?

Yes

Are you a Level 20 vegan or higher? KIDDING, but How long have you been vegan (maybe mention the year so the answer is future proof) or how long have you been transitioning to vegan?

Since early 2006

Please describe what inspired you to become vegan (optional, just type "optional" if you don't feel like answering).

A little bird inspired me go vegan. He crashed into my picture window, I spent the better half of a day finding him help. I eventually located a wildlife rescue that would take him in, spent 2 hours getting across town and back in rush hour. I then found myself cooking a chicken's breast for dinner. I had just gone through the trouble of helping that little bird and now I was eating another. And what kind of life did this bird have? Basically just had an epiphany, threw out what I now saw as a "body part", got on the web and started researching... went vegan overnight never to look back.

Yes

Are you interested in tabling vegan literature at community events? Not interested is fine :)
