What we're about
The Katy West Houston Vegan Meetup supports vegan living in one of the fastest growing suburbs in the Houston area! You don't have to be vegan to join the meetup, but we do encourage you to become vegan and support you in your journey toward a vegan lifestyle. We also ask that you live in the Houston area, or surrounding suburbs like Katy, Sugar Land, Brookshire, Fulshear, Spring.
Food brought to any gatherings must be 100% vegan. We want to make it possible to enjoy vegan gatherings outside the Loop and Beltway for those of us living on Houston's west side and in Katy, TX!
We also support and share events listings from the Vegan Society of P.E.A.C.E. -- Houston's most active vegan and animal rights nonprofit organization ( http://www.vegansocietyofpeace.org ). Many of us travel into Houston (and sometimes Clear Lake) for Vegan Society of P.E.A.C.E. sponsored events and hope to have some held in Katy, too. They produce and host the annual VegFest Houston Festival and Texas Go Vegan Week (http://www.vegansocietyofpeace.org/texasgoveganweek).
As a vegan lifestyle group, we recognize the many reasons for choosing vegan: animal rights, ethics and compassion, environmental, health, nutrition, spirituality, social justice and nonviolence. Our meetup discussions will focus on these primary reasons. Our gatherings will be for all ages, unless noted otherwise. We do not endorse or host sales-related events, so please respect our no-soliciting policy!
We hope this meetup will meet the needs of a growing vegan population in the Katy/West Houston area!
