About Vegan Outreach
“VO’s approach, simultaneously pragmatic and forward-thinking, focuses on engaging those who are deemed most open to lifestyle changes: namely, the young, and, in particular, college students. Perhaps more importantly, its philosophy extends well beyond mere ‘vegan’ outreach as a practical recognition of how vital it is to meet people where they are, not where animal advocates want them to be.”
“The Road to Vegetopia”
Vegan Outreach is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization working to expose and end cruelty to animals through the widespread distribution of our booklets promoting plant-based eating and compassion for animals.
You can view our current advocacy booklets here.
As a member of Vegan Outreach, anyone can be an effective spokesperson for the animals.
We distribute our booklets primarily through our Adopt a College program, which reaches about 800–900K students at up to 1,000 schools every semester. We also distribute our booklets at concerts and festivals, and in veg-friendly restaurants and grocery stores, among other places.
Leafleting has a distinct benefit in that many people who otherwise would never seek out this information, or might even avoid it, change their eating habits after being handed one of our booklets. Without someone going right to them and handing them the information, they would have never become aware of the extent to which animals are made to suffer in modern agribusiness.
While based in the United States, VO has an extensive presence in Australia and Canada, and also does outreach in Mexico on a regular basis. Our booklets have been translated into a number of non-English languages (click here).
As shown by the excerpts of feedback included in Vegan Outreach’s printed newsletters and enewsletters, there are many new vegetarians and vegans because of our booklets, with the number growing every day.
“[A] single dollar donated to Vegan Outreach is expected to prevent between 100 days and 51 years of suffering on a factory farm.”

“The Vegan Outreach team serve as a vital cog in the rapidly expanding vegan movement. Smart, smiling, happy, healthy and fit people on university campuses handing out a colorful booklet carefully designed to inform but not offend – it’s a winning formula. The sky’s the limit. Their ultimate success will come when there will no longer be any demand for their booklets, because everyone has already read it and changed their lives.”
