I searched vegetarian groups on meetup
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.
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.

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