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

What we do: offer support & build community. We host potlucks, restaurant outings, online forums, outreach events, and other volunteer opportunities.

At VLI meetups, the food is always vegan, and everyone is treated with kindness.

New/aspiring vegan? Resources here:

Curious about why so many people are going vegan?  Check out this "Why Vegan?" letter. (Rather watch a video than read a letter? Here you go: A Life Connected.  Another excellent video: Making the Connection.)

Click here for helpful group info (rules, subgroups, etc).

Got kids? You rock! In addition to VLI, check out Vegan Long Island Family Events (VLIFE).
