What we're about

https://secure.meetupstatic.com/photos/event/c/f/6/6/event_23153094.jpeg

Even if you are not vegan yet, our main goal is to meet other kind, compassionate, and healthy seeking people monthly at various times of the the month for potlucks and/or presentations, speakers, educational DVDs. We also have monthly dine outs, fitness excursions, book clubs and any other ideas you have regarding health, animal welfare and earth sustainablilty. When we have potlucks or snacks, please bring a plant based or vegan dish or snack (no dairy or eggs) to our potlucks so that everyone can eat all the dishes. We do not want to include eggs, dairy, or meat as we do not want to contribute to the suffering or early death of egg laying chickens or dairy cows.

THIS meetup group is for EVERYONE interested in becoming compassionate and healthy too. This is for YOU and we make this successful by joining here together to make our events successful!

Eliminating Self-Sabotage

Queen Sheba Ethiopian Cuisine

Watch this short video: https://youtu.be/OsP43GhDdK0 Einstein said “the significant problems we face cannot be solved at the same level of thinking we were at when we created them!” What he was telling us is that we have to think a different way, AND we need to take responsibility for the fact that we created our own problems – not intentionally – but subconsciously. To end the insanity of trying and failing yet again, we first need to understand the map of the subconscious mind. Only then can we begin the process of eliminating self-sabotage. In this session, you will learn: > Defense strategies and dysfunctional habits that hold you back > HOW your subconscious runs the show > YOUR pattern that holds you back > 4-step process to successfully begin rewiring your subconscious Since materials are provided in this seminar, please pre-register.

Make Fur History: Second Vote in California!

Needs a location

The California Fur Ban passed its first vote 10-4, but it was a nail-biter! Our big presence at the hearing helped secure enough support to move the bill onto the next Committee. Now, we need YOU to show up in big numbers again so we can win the second vote. We'll be packing the State Capitol to show support for the ban and send a clear message to the entire state that fur is history. Afterwards, we'll participate in a creative and peaceful demonstration. WHO: You and all your friends! We need as many people as possible to be there in person to support the ban. WHERE: Meet outside Room 437 at the State Capitol. Give yourself time to find parking, go through security, and get to the room. WHEN: Please meet at 8:30am. The hearing starts right at 9:00am and we do not know how long the hearing will last. After the hearing, we will move to outside the Capitol for a rally! WEAR: Please wear a blue DxE shirt if you have one. If you would like us to bring one for you, please email [masked]. --- Direct Action Everywhere (DxE) is a grassroots network of animal rights activists. Through open rescue, demonstration, and disruption, we are creating a world where every animal is safe, happy and free. DxE cultivates a welcoming and supportive community.
