URGENT: New Printing Needed

With many thousands of booklets being distributed every week via the Adopt a College program, tables, and other events, Vegan Outreach needs to do another printing of Why Vegan by mid-October if we are not to run out. (If your group is interested in sponsoring a run of Why Vegans with your logo on them, contact us. The minimum run is 20,000 copies.)

If we can print a batch of 250,000, we will save $4,000 compared to printing in batches of 150,000. But in order to print 250,000, we need to raise $10,000 in the next few weeks.

So please, if at all possible, make a special donation today. We will keep a tally of how much we've raised on our home page and in this email newsletter.

Notes from All Over

Milk and Politics

"Larry Salathe, a 27-year veteran of the USDA, also suggested that his agency would hold off on policies that could anger dairy farmers--including proposing a new milk tax on them and eliminating a price support program--until after the election."


SARA Conferences

This school year, the Student Animal Rights Alliance will be organizing our “Liberation Now!” national student animal rights conference in Berkeley, CA and “Demand Liberation” regional student animal rights action conferences in Austin, TX, Boston, MA, Gainesville, FL, Minneapolis, MN, and Philadelphia, PA.

From Our Members

While at the Bumbershoot festival in Seattle, I came upon your Why Vegan? Boycott Cruelty! booklet. Though I have always been into animal rights, I realized I couldn't be as long as I ate meat and dairy. After reading this, I have completely decided never again to eat animal products, or wear/use them for that matter. Thank you -- I want to spread the message.

Thank you for your sound and logical definition of "vegan." I have been almost afraid to say I am vegan, for fear of a tongue lashing by a "real" vegan.

When I was at the AR2004 conference in DC this summer, I got some extra copies of A Meaningful Life from the Vegan Outreach table to distribute to various activists in Minneapolis. I gave one to a good friend, who just went vegan a few months ago. After reading it, he told me he really wants to devote his efforts to animal rights as much as possible. Since then, he's done a lot of volunteering with us! Thanks so much for the wise words in that piece and everything you do for AR...truly inspirational!
Gil Schwartz, Minneapolis, MN, 9/22/04

At AR2004, you offered me A Meaningful Life. Since then I have changed my mind on activism tactics. I must say I agree with almost everything you say. I think that now you're my number one AR group!
     I'm excited about leafleting with Why Vegans. They are definitely the best pamphlet on the matter. I love the fact that it has footnotes. I can't wait for my box to arrive!
