How did you hear about the Boulder & Beyong vegan meetup?

I searched vegetarian groups on meetup

What made you decide to go vegan/ explore a more compassionate lifestyle?

I've been borderline for years, not daring to think to closely about the meat I ate because it already troubled me. October of 2013 I was asked to sign a petition against Walmart since they use a pork supplier that uses gestation crates and I watched the video because I didn't know why that was an issue. I couldn't stand seeing animals being treated so horribly and I vowed not to contribute to the suffering of animals by eating meat. Less than a year later I became vegan.

What kind of activities would you like to see the group participate in?

I'm open most anything but a vegan/vegetarian 101 would be an awesome way for established people to share their knowledge and skills with newbies.

On your veg journey, do you have specific challenges that you'd like help with?

No answer yet

Introduction

Vegan since August of 2014, vegetarian for ~10 months prior . I enjoy connecting with others for fun and sharing ideas.

What Susan T is saying about this Meetup Group

I am a vegetarian and at the pot luck everyone I spoke to was very kind, open and accepting so overall it was a positive night.
