Searched through the meet up groups.
I was a member of two vegan groups in Denver. We had potlucks, Pop Up markets with vegan vendors, and some plant based cooking demonstrations.
I lived in the country outside of Silt and walked by cows, deer and elk each day with my dogs. I decided then that I didn't need to eat them to survive. Digestion, and the movie Food, Inc. convinced me to give up the rest of the animal products. It's a matter of principle, and the feeling that all living beings deserve to be loved.
I have been a vegan for five years. I gave up eating mammals ten years ago, and after watching Food, Inc. I gave up all poultry and fish. I just moved back to the Western Slope after living in Denver for five years, and I'm thrilled to join!
