Help Prevent Suffering – Support Vegan Outreach

Try Vegetarian! Update

Last week, Vegan Outreach announced the replacement for the booklet Vegetarian Living, as well as our campaign to raise $12,000. So far, we have received eight donations, totaling $365 (you can get up-to-date totals here). Thanks to everyone who has contributed!

We need your help if we are going to be able to print and distribute Try Vegetarian!

Thank you for your wonderful work. Your materials and efforts to educate the world are outstanding. Vegan Outreach is the best friend the animals could have.

10th Anniversary!

This summer marks the tenth anniversary of Vegan Outreach. In 1993, Jack Norris, Anne Green, Matt Ball, and Mark McEahrn organized a Fast For Farm Animals – a three-day water-only fast outside the Hillshire Farms / Kahn's slaughterhouse in Cincinnati, OH. From that event, Animal Liberation Action – which became Vegan Outreach – was formed. Since then, we've gone from the first one-page booklet Vegetarianism (funded by Pangea's Phil Murray, through his last National Merit Scholarship check), to And Justice for All, to Vegan Outreach (which we collated, stapled, and folded by hand) to the many versions of Why Vegan and the upcoming Try Vegetarian.

Ten years, ten thousand+ members (from all fifty states and dozens of other countries), and 2.5 million booklets (luckily, not all folded by hand!) later, "vegan" is a well-known word, and vegans are a noticeable population in the U.S. Uncounted lives have been altered, and immensurable misery prevented.

Many people have made this possible – too many to list here. Your support will allow compassionate and dedicated individuals to continue – and expand – our efforts.

Thank YOU!


Animal Liberation Actions

In addition to speeches, talks, and conferences (also see below), members of Vegan Outreach have been working hard every day! Tens of thousands of leaflets are being distributed at music concerts and events in the U.S. and Canada. Our new Adopt a College program is being readied (more on this in future Spams), and the next Leaflet Your Local School Day is being planned.

Also, if you haven't read "Staying a Healthy Vegan" yet, Jack Norris, RD has recently updated it (though nothing major has changed).

These are just a few of the many activities we have been working on! Thanks to everyone who has been pitching in to make this the most successful year ever!
