Have you read the About Us page ( ) and are aware this group is for people who are, or are seriously transitioning to becoming, vegan for ethical reasons?

I think caring for animals for ethical reasons and caring for oneself are two sides of the same coin. I think they both go together. It's important to be kind and loving to all creatures of the earth (including oneself).

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 the beginning of 2012, though it's been a process... And I'm still not perfect at it. I would say I'm "mostly vegan" at this point.

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

Forks over knives, my interest in PETA, my interest in Farm Sanctuary, and the movie Earthlings.... Oh and my love of animals, nature and all living things. I've always had that sentiment since I was a little girl.

Are you interested in leafleting flyers? Not interested is fine :)


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

No answer yet


I'm interested in doing anything I can to help animals so that they can live a happy, vibrant life. But I know I still have a lot to learn in terms of how to be most effective with educating and sharing this info. I'm excited you started this group!

What Sylvia R. is saying about this Meetup Group

I'm looking forward to future meetups and positive, progressive activities. Looking forward to our first event!... whenever it may be. :)
