What we're about

One of the most positive, life affirming choices anyone can make for their health, all animals and the planet is to adopt and practice a vegan lifestyle. This group is for anyone who is already vegan or just curious and would like to learn more about this compassionate lifestyle choice. The meet-up is a non-judgmental place to have fun, get educated and connect with community. We host peaceful protests against cruelty to animals, leafletting (hand out vegan literature) and set up educational booths at events like Earth Day. This group also holds a vegan (plant based: no meat, no dairy, no eggs, and no honey) potluck on the first Saturday of every month! Since this group is run by three ethical vegans, anyone can contact us to suggest a meetup, but all of the events have to be vegan. :)

FREE MOVIE: A Prayer for Compassion

Unity Spiritual Center of Albuquerque

Hosted by Plant Based Eating NM. UPDATE: Due to Covid -19, rescheduled to June 7. _________________ Doors will open at 5pm and the movie will begin at 6pm. Refreshments will be provided to attendees. This free event is open to any and all who are interested, including any religious/spiritual practice. For questions or more information please contact Tony Quintana at[masked] or [masked]. Space is limited, so be sure to reserve your FREE tickets today. A Prayer for Compassion is a feature length documentary that strives to inspire and encourage those already on a religious or spiritual path, to expand their circle of compassion to embrace all life, regardless of species, and make choices in alignment with this value. The film follows Thomas Jackson on a quest across America, that ultimately takes him to Morocco for the UN Climate Conference and throughout the Indian subcontinent to ask the question, “Can compassion grow to include all beings? And can people who identify as religious or spiritual come to embrace the call to include all human and nonhuman beings in our circle of respect and caring and love?” Drawing on traditions including Christianity — evangelical, Roman Catholic, Eastern Orthodox, Friends (Quakers), Seventh Day Adventism, Unity, and more; Judaism; Islam; Hinduism; Buddhism; Jainism; the Native American tradition; Unitarian Universalism; Zoroastrianism; and the “spiritual but not religious” point of view — A Prayer for Compassion calls on people of faith and spiritual seekers of every stripe to come together to bring about a world that works for all.
