How did you learn about Vegan Long Island—did you find us through Meetup.com? Via Facebook? Through a friend? Did you hear about us at an event? Maybe you spotted a VEGAN button on a friendly stranger, and you struck up a conversation!

I have been a part of it from the beginning.

What's your present diet like? (We appreciate that today you may be just vegan-curious, and we're happy to have you sign up—because every vegan meal is a positive step! We ask our members to be open to new things & treat one another with kindness.)

I I went Vegetarian when I was in High School at age 17. Then I went vegan in 2004 at age 31.

If you need compassionate support, VLI can help. Are you having trouble going or staying vegan for any reason? If so, reply "yes" here, or send us a private message—a member of the leadership team will contact you. If you're doing fine, that's great!

I am doing just fine. Thanks anyway ;)

About participation: it's totally fine to be relatively inactive. But if you want to get involved right away, great! Do you know of a good venue for a potluck? Got time or money for projects? If so, let us know. If not, you can reply "Not right now."

A great place for pot lucks is and my husband Mark and my home in North Patchogue. Brings lots of friends and food.

We love hearing your top reason(s) for choosing vegan food/vegan living:

My compassion for animals for the first and foremost thing and still is. Our planet and my health is also important. No matter how much debate there can be about the health of being vegan and the pollution of the meat industry, the animal torture and slaughter cannot be denied.
