DO I HAVE TO BE THE BOSS OF PEOPLE TO JOIN VEGAN LADYBOSS?

No. The "#boss" in Vegan Ladyboss doesn't refer to managing people-- it refers to being the boss of your life!

I’M VEGETARIAN, AND THINKING ABOUT GOING VEGAN. CAN I STILL JOIN VEGAN LADYBOSS?

For womxn who are not yet vegan, please go vegan and join us!

In the meantime, there are many organizations that assist with how (and why) to go vegan. Seek them out and get the info and support you need to make the switch! 

I’M CONCERNED ABOUT DIVERSITY INCLUSIVITY. IS VLB WELCOMING TO QUEER, TRANSGENDER AND GENDER NON-BINARY FOLKS?

Yes! VLB was created as a safe space for vegan womxn (queer, transgender and gender non-binary folks included) to gather and support each other's careers and animal advocacy. Diversity makes us stronger. Join us.

WHY DO YOU USE THE TERM WOMXN?

We believe that womxn is a more inclusive and progressive term that includes queer, transgender and gender-nonbinary folks.

CAN I CHARGE MONEY FOR PEOPLE TO ATTEND MY VEGAN LADYBOSS MEETING?

No, Vegan Ladyboss meetings must always be free of charge.

I’D LIKE TO ORGANIZE A PRIVATE VEGAN LADYBOSS MEETING. AM I REQUIRED TO KEEP IT OPEN TO THE PUBLIC?

No, you're welcome to host a VLB meeting that is closed to the public. However, many organizers choose to host meetings open to their friends, as well as their local VLBs. 

DO I HAVE TO USE FACEBOOK TO ORGANIZE A VEGAN LADYBOSS MEETING?

You can organize using whichever method works best for you. Some organizers use Facebook, but it is not required. Email works great.

TO BE AN ORGANIZER, WOULD I HAVE TO ORGANIZE A MEETING EVERY MONTH?

No, but we have found that monthly is a good frequency to develop a local Vegan Ladyboss community. We encourage organizers to have monthly (or more!) meetings.

CAN I SPONSOR VEGAN LADYBOSS?

No, Vegan Ladyboss does not accept official sponsorships. However, we happily accept contributions in the form of venue locations to host meetings, and food or beverages to provide at meetings. If you’d like to offer your venue, food or beverages, please contact your local organizer which can be found here.

IS VEGAN LADYBOSS A NON-PROFIT ORGANIZATION?

No, Vegan Ladyboss is not a non-profit organization. We do not accept any donations, and all VLB meetings must be free of charge. 

CAN THERE BE MORE THAN ONE ORGANIZER PER GEOGRAPHIC LOCATION?

Yes! It is not uncommon for there to be multiple organizers per geographic location. These organizers may co-create meetings or organize independently. Perhaps one organizer has weekend meetings and another has their meetings mid-week. We are all about collaboration not competition. As Vegan Ladyboss continues to grow, so too will the number of organizers. And that’s a good thing!

CAN MEN ATTEND VLB MEETINGS?

No. For now, VLB meetings are for womxn only.
