The purpose of the Rowdy Girl Rally series is to inspire and build a plant-based community at Rowdy Girl Sanctuary by hosting area speakers that are passionate about animal rights and veganism as a way of life. We will share our plant-based recipes and enjoy a potluck dinner during the speaker, and afterward those that sign up can tour the sanctuary NEXT DOOR!
We plan to bring together plant based enthusiasts from the 13 counties surrounding RGS. They are: Harris, Brazoria, Galveston, Matagorda, Fort Bend, Colorado, Austin, Chambers, Liberty, Walker, Montgomery, Waller & Wharton. Come and represent your county! Get the word out – we seek to create a ground swell of interest so that our May 19, 2018 event will be a huge success! #texasisgoingvegan
