What we're about

Vegan Long Island...where vegans feel at home, and not-yet-vegans are warmly welcomed. Providing a soft landing for new vegans since 2008!

We help people across Long Island connect with communities, projects, and events that support vegan living.

Our new website is coming! Get ready for a community events calendar, restaurant-finder-map, and interest groups you can join. Meanwhile, we're still promoting events via this Meetup group. Sign up today so you won't miss out!

New/aspiring vegan? Resources here: http://www.meetup.com/Vegan-Long-Island/events/9986489/

Curious about why so many people are going vegan? Check out this "Why Vegan?" letter (https://www.meetup.com/Vegan-Long-Island/pages/1228608/Why_Vegan/). (Rather watch a video than read a letter? Here you go: A Life Connected (http://www.nonviolenceunited.org/veganvideo.html). Another excellent video: Making the Connection (http://vimeo.com/15849273).)

Got kids? You rock! In addition to VLI, check out Vegan Long Island Family Events (VLIFE) (http://www.meetup.com/Vegan-Long-Island-Family-Events/).
