Vegan Outreach Enewsletter  •  November 9, 2005

 

This issue sponsored by DownBound:


Yesterday, 5 CAA volunteers, including myself, distributed about 250 Why Vegan leaflets after the O.A.R. concert in Minneapolis. One woman said that she had received a leaflet from us several months ago on a campus and hasn't eaten meat since then.
     After leafleting, I asked two of the new volunteers how they got into animal rights, and both of them said it was after receiving a Why Vegan -- in the mid-90s! The first one went vegan immediately and has since been very active in animal rights advocacy, and the other one went vegan after a month of reading it.
     For me this is very hopeful, considering how much the pamphlets have improved over the years and the escalating amounts being distributed. The seeds have been planted and they are starting to grow and blossom!

Notes from Vegan Outreach

The Greatest Thanks!

Because of your tremendous generosity, Vegan Outreach has raised the $19,000 needed for the next printing. Thanks so much to everyone who contributed to allow continued outreach!

Every day, activists are out there using Vegan Outreach literature to provide the animals a voice. Almost 4,000,000 copies have been distributed around the world -- nearly 700,000 in 2005 alone!

For example: just last week, Jon Camp, with some help from friends Ellen Green (right) and Ayako Mogen (left) distributed over 4,300 copies of Even If You Like Meat (and copies of the new Guide to Cruelty-Free Eating to those who wanted more information) at West Virginia University, Duquesne, Community College of Allegheny College, the University of Pittsburgh, Slippery Rock U., and Indiana University of PA.

Please know that none of this would be possible without your generous support!

We'd like to offer our greatest thanks to everyone who donated to our recent printings, and to all of you who have provided support over time. We'll continue to work hard every day to make your contributions go as far as possible! Thanks!!

Product of the Week

Joyce Tenerowicz writes: "Morningstar Farms has bags of unbreaded mock chicken strips. I made them into 'chicken' and dumplings, and they were excellent (I think they are best if you brown them in a frying pan before adding them to a soup to keep the texture). They also have mock beef strips in the same type of packaging. Both of the new mock meat strips are vegan and are marked as such on the bag." The Morningstar site also has recipes.

Notes from All Over

Bird Flu Triggers Concern over Consumption of Eggs

excerpt: "The discovery of chickens infected by the bird flu virus but showing no symptoms of the disease has triggered concern over consumption of their eggs. Scientists cannot agree whether the content of the eggs from such chickens are free of the virus, but they do say there is some risk because the surface of the egg shells may still be tainted with virus-laden excreta of the birds."

 

Shocker: Nine-Year-Old Humane Law Not Implemented or Enforced

excerpt: "...the New Jersey Department of Agriculture has failed to establish humane standards for farm animals--as required by the New Jersey legislature in 1996--and has instead sanctioned numerous inhumane practices used to raise animals for meat, eggs, and milk on industrialized factory farms."

 

Notes from Our Members

A young man handed me Even If You Like Meat at UW-Madison. Your little book was just the thing to help me stop eating poultry and fish. This tool is very effective.

This past Wednesday, I tabled with a student at the Vaughn College of Aeronautics in Queens, and we passed out all the rest of my EIYLM and Try Vegetarians. I couldn't believe the receptivity! Nothing like leafleting on the street during rush hour. Professors stopped by to get literature too. One student said he thought your literature was the best because it cited references and gave the info credibility.

Distributed about 150 Why Vegans at a rally in San Francisco yesterday. Before I could hand any out, I saw someone with a Why Vegan in their pocket, and it turns out another activist was there distributing them as well. This was a great crowd. As people marched, I said, "Take a stand against violence every time you eat," and had a really high rate of acceptance. One teenage girl came running up to me and gave me a huge hug, saying that she is vegan and thanking me for being out there leafleting about veganism!
