Respond to Review of Vegetarian Society of the District of Columbia
by Veganwithavengance

Review: VSDC is ok but they refused to go vegan at their functions. Even some vegan members of the group thought that exploiting animals was ok at gatherings so they don't offend the carnists and vegetarians. They do help out within the community and help sponsor events but it is very sad they won't go vegan or at least adopt a policy of strict vegetarianism

I just wonder why there was any debate about being vegan at their functions? Why would animal products be ok in any situation? There is nothing clear about saying non-vegan stuff is ok and that we should worry about accommodating carnists and vegetarians, food wise. Promote veganism and don't be wishy-washy because it doesn't help animals.

If you properly define veganism and be confident about it people will take you seriously and want to know more. When we make excuses for people and call them vegan when they aren't there yet it makes a joke out of it and hurts animals in the end and people give up easily but if we are honest we will be better off.

Everything VSDC does is planned vegan. They never promote or encourage any animal products. They are one of clearest voices for a vegan diet and lifestyle in the DC area, showing why it's easy, fun, and so important. I'd encourage anyone to check them out and decide for yourself.
