What we're about

We're building a supportive community for vegan, vegetarian, and veg-curious folks in the Alamo City. If you're moving toward a more healthful, sustainable, and compassionate way of eating -- or if you simply wonder why kale has been getting such good press lately -- you're welcome to join us.

This group is designed to be active and inclusive, offering events to suit a wide range of schedules and interests. We hatched our plans for vegan world domination over plates of local, organic food at Vegeria, and we'll continue to meet there for brunch on the 1st Saturday of each month. With San Antonio's own chapter of Vegan Drinks, we'll imbibe and converse at a different location each month, always on the 3rd Tuesday. If you can't wait to share your latest culinary concoction (or try someone else's), you can join us for our monthly vegan potluck.

Other items on our bucket list: movie nights, book discussions, opportunities for volunteer work and activism, field trips to veg-friendly restaurants and events outside the city, and anything else our wonderful members suggest.

We're a new group, and although both of your co-organizers hold strong opinions on any and every subject, you can trust that we'll respond to your concerns and make use of your suggestions.

We think that what we were told as children is still true: People who eat their veggies grow up strong and smart. We're excited to meet all of San Antonio's awesome vegetable eaters!

Boycott Sea World Demo

Sea World San Antonio

While attendance is down for the theme park, it's now when we as a community need to continue to put pressure on the park to keep their promise to the animals. Please join us for our once a month peaceful demo to show #SeaWorldOfHurt that we won't forget the animals. It was May 2016 that Sea World announced that they would end Orca breeding program and end the Orca shows. However, they failed to mention the other animals, including, Beluga Whales, Dolphins, Seals, etc. During that same time, Sea World of San Antonio opened the Discovery Point exhibit that allows a person to swim with dolphins for 30 minutes. This is still exploitative. Please join us in making our voices heard that these intelligent earthlings are not alone. .

Vegan Drinks

Tarka Indian Kitchen

Come on and join us for some socializing and networking. The essence of Vegan Drinks: It's a great way of catching up with people you know and also for making new contacts. These events are very simple and unstructured, but many people have found employment, made friends, developed new ideas, done deals and had moments of serendipity. It's a force for the good. If you've got books or videos to share, bring them. See you there and bring a friend!

Free Webinar: History, Power, Immortality, and Wildlife Demand

Join the Wolf Conservation Center and Professor Mary Ting on July 30, 2020, for a visual historical overview of the Chinese market for wildlife products. From fauna to flora, native to exotic, farmed to wild caught, countless species are imperiled for use as household decor, fashion items, traditional medicine and wellness products, luxury food, and exotic pets, entertainment and research experimentation. This complex topic is often simplified by the media and deserving of a more nuanced examination. Professor Ting will discuss the relationship of wildlife trade to zoonotic diseases, illegal /legal products, role of marketing, how we got to this current point, positive changes, future concerns and a path forward. The talk will also touch on the parallel and related U.S. wildlife trade industry as well as non-Chinese traditional medicine markets.
