Vegan Social Clubs was established in October 2015 by 12 vegan strangers who wanted to meet face-to-face after months of online interactions. It was such an amazing experience socializing, dining and networking with other vegans in the real world that we launched our Facebook social club. After a few lunches and fun get-togethers, the group took off!
If you are a member of FB, please search and like our Vegan Social Clubs page and join our group, Vegan Social Clubs - Atlanta. Find us on Instagram and Twitter, as well @VSClife
Our group is open to everyone, regardless of where you may find yourself in this vegan / plant-based lifestyle. We look forward to seeing you soon! We commit to update the group weekly, and to take all suggestions, recommendations, considerations and requests to heart. If you're interested in helping to manage the group, please reach out to me. Email or text me directly for the quickest response.
For Virtual Documentary Night we are meeting to talk about the documentary, Stare Into The Lights My Pretties. The documentary looks at our compulsive obsession with our devices and how screen culture can affect us all physically, psychologically and socially. Here is a link to where you can watch it for free. https://youtu.be/Q5qJjNM2Kx0 You must watch the film on your own BEFORE the event. We will be meeting over Zoom, where we will break out into small discussion groups. We will do multiple rounds of small group discussion, then close out the night with larger group discussion. I will send out the Zoom link to those listed as attending the day of the event. Please make sure and message me before the start of the event if you have not received the link. It should go to your email if you are RSVPed by the time I send it out to everyone.
This event is hosted in collaboration with multiple meetup groups, including the Atlanta Social Club (20's, 30's, etc), Austin Documentary Fans, Atlanta Volunteer Meetup, the Ethical Humanists of Atlanta, Sunday Assembly Atlanta, and the Vegan Social Club. Therefore those in attendance will be from varying backgrounds and beliefs. This is in order to provide an opportunity to hear a wide range of perspectives.
This event is open to all who are open to all. The one thing we ask is that people allow others to get their full thought out and that any disagreement is voiced in a civil way.
Thank you and hope to see you there!
