What we're about

Public Group

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.

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).)
