NWVeg Vegan ThanksGiving 2015

On Sunday Oct 22nd, I and about 300 veg-spectrum folks(vast majority vegan) gathered for the 12th annual Compassionate Thanksgiving. It was held at Oaks Park Pavilion for the second year in a row, which was a quick 15min bike ride from my house in Brooklyn neighborhood, along the SpringWater Corridor.

My housemate and I got in for free in exchange for volunteering, and we ended up setting up recycling/compost bins, and sorting them out at the end. A few of my other collective mates joined me as well, and we feasted on delicious food, made new friends, and gave a valiant effort during the trivia rounds.

I also signed up to mentor a local person  transitioning to veganism, starting in the new year! There is a similar program via Vegan Outreach.

Lastly, they showed  a great sneak peak of the upcoming Vegan: Everyday Stories movie NWVeg is backing:
