Why are you interested in our group?

Linda is my step/aerobics/Zumba/Pilates teacher. We were both at City Council to protest the City's recent treatment of elephants. I have a brother who is a long-time vegetarian. I have no medical insurance, so want to stay healthy.

Tell us about yourself!

I went through vegetarian training at UCDMC to prevent heart attacks and diabetes, but I need an update.

What are your interests?

I am interested in health (fitness, diet, stress reduction, recreation), family, dancing, world music, conflict resolution, non-violence, xeriscape, sustainability.

Do you care about animal welfare?

Yes, I always knew I could never kill an animal for food, so why was I eating meat? I couldn't be in 4H because I couldn't raise an animal to kill it. I couldn't support the Heifer Project in case they killed the animal.
