<b>The Toronto Vegetarian Association (<a href="http://www.veg.ca" target="_blank">www.veg.ca</a>) has a new youth group!</b><br><br><br><br>
There are two aspects to the youth group:<br><br><br><br>
1. We hold <b>networking/info sharing sessions</b> to give people in high school and university a chance to offer support and share ideas about running a vegetarian/animal rights group at one's school.<br><br><br><br>
2. We have <b>monthly educational and social events</b> for vegetarians and those interested in vegetarianism. These events are held in the GTA, and are designed for people aged 16-20. Examples of events include cooking classes, discussion panels, speakers, and poetry workshops. We've dubbed these events "V-Dot, Toronto's Vegetarian Youth"<br><br><br><br>
We'd love to hear feedback about the group and are very open to suggestions. We're here for you, so use us!<br><br><br><br><b>Our first V-Dot event:</b><br><br><b>WHEN:</b> Wednesday, October 18th, 6:30-9:30pm<br><br><b>WHAT:</b> This theme of this one is Vegetarian Self-Defence. It will be a discussion about answering stupid questions regarding vegetarianism followed by a fun movie. Free vegan snacks will be provided!<br><br><b>RSVP:</b> or get more info (such as location) by emailing <a href="mailto:[email protected]">[email protected]</a> or calling (416) 544 - 9800
