Hello, friend. This group is for those who embrace animal liberation and want to actively help end animal exploitation. In order to determine if this is the right group for you, please read on. What this group is: The intent of this group is to promote certain select animal rights events in the Greater Washington DC area. We may also have our own events. If you believe in total animal liberation, you are vegan (which includes diet, products you purchase, your choice in entertainment, etc…), and you are interested in peaceful and lawful action, this group might be for you. What this group isn’t: While vegan potlucks, vegan meetups at vegan restaurants, and vegan happy hours are a great way to help introduce non-vegans to veganism, this meetup isn’t for that. If we do have any potlucks, meetups at restaurants, or happy hours, they will be for vegans to relax with other vegans. Sometimes it is just nice to go to a potluck, restaurant, or happy hour and not have to listen to the vegan-curious attendees ask you where you get your protein or ask how you can possibly live without eating such and such non-vegan item. This group isn’t for those striving to be vegan or for those that are “mostly vegan”. If you are interested in veganism but currently don’t support animal liberation and you aren’t currently vegan AF, Meetup.com has many other great vegan-focused groups in the area that I encourage you to join :) Thanks!
