What we're about
This group is for anyone interested in veganism. The unifying theme for the meetup events is vegan food and lifestyle, but you don't have to be vegan to join this group and attend the events. However, the purpose of the group is for vegans to meet like-minded people and all meetup events are to be fully vegan.
A vegan avoids the consumption of animal products, hence a vegan diet is characterized by being a plant-based diet containing no animal products, i.e. no meat, no fish, no egg, no dairy products, and no honey.
There are several reasons for adopting a vegan lifestyle. In the video clip below Gary Yourofsky explains why you should become a vegan. He is very entertaining and it is really worth watching.
You can also become vegan for a better health. See Michael Greger's annual talk about how you can avoid the most common diseases with a vegan diet:
