What we're about
Black Vegan Life is for people of color and their friends to meet other vegans and aspiring vegans in the Atlanta area.
We began in November of 2014 and have hosted over 250 activities and events. Each month you will have the opportunity to participate in anywhere between 2-10 events. Events typically take place in Atlanta and the surrounding areas; some are even virtual, allowing you to participate from home. We support vegan restaurants and events geared toward black culture, compassion and wellness. We hope you will join us!
We have a $12 annual membership fee ($1 per month) to cover the cost of administering the group and provide a buffer for planning our larger events, like retreats.
As a courtesy to all members of the group and the venues we support, we ask that you show up for events that you've committed to attend. If you can't, simply update your RSVP prior to the event. This will give another member the opportunity to attend and provide an accurate headcount for the venue. This condition doesn't apply to events that you've paid for in advance or "open" activities likes festivals, hikes, etc. However, it is important we have an accurate headcount for restaurants.
We strongly recommend you download the meetup app on your smartphone for easy communication, particularly during events where we need to find each other.
Some events have the risk of physical injury. It is your responsibility to only attend events you are physically able to participate in. Black Vegan Life and its organizers may not be held responsible for injuries at any events.
We hope you will join us as we continue to grow and form an amazing vegan community for people of color.
We look forward to seeing you soon!
