Notes from Vegan Outreach

Note from Jon Camp

Last week's leafleting was spent in northern Ohio. Like previous weeks, it was chock-full of constructive conversations and new inroads created for the animals. Thanks to the great help of Dan Kuzma (at right) and other volunteers, 3,960 Even If You Like Meat booklets were individually handed to students of Kent State, U of Akron, Youngstown State U, Cleveland State U, Oberlin College, and Bowling Green State U.

Many individuals came up to me stating how moved they were by the booklet. At Youngstown State U, a young woman brought the booklet into her Environmental Ethics class and as a result, her professor spent the entire class period on factory farming issues. At Bowling Green State U, I met a graduate student who has been vegan since receiving a Vegan Outreach booklet on campus in 1999. She is a living example of the tangible results that come from leafleting. Years from now there will be many more such individuals -- a result of those of us who are currently using our time and/ or funds to inform the general public of the animals' plight.

Next week I will be leafleting at U of WI Parkside, U of WI Whitewater, U of WI Oshkosh, U of WI Milwaukee, and U of WI Madison. If you would like to leaflet with me or if you would like for me to talk to your local or student group, please email jon at veganoutreach.org. Thanks so much!

Products of the Week

From Wyoming, Paula Wilson-CaziƩr: "I'd like to submit the Ener-G Egg-Replacer as vegan product of the week. For people like me who love to bake, it enables us to easily and quickly adapt any recipe to vegan. The entire Ener-G website is a great place to shop - they list all the ingredients of the products and have popup windows for nutritional information panels, recipes, and an Ener-G products retail store finder, as well."

Aly Thewes nominates "Amy's Bean and Rice burrito. It's 100% vegan, and it's also 100% delicious. I didn't have too much faith in a frozen burrito tasting too good, but I was wrong." (Note: the Breakfast and Black Bean Vegetable burritos are vegan, too.)

Send your nominees for Product of the Week to info (at) veganoutreach.org; previous products can be found here.

Notes from Our Members

I work in college food service. Veganism is becoming more popular among college students. I personally need more education on this so that we can properly provide tasty and exciting menus. I will look forward to your free information.

At the Earth Day event in San Antonio, VOICE for Animals gave out hundreds of Why Vegans (at right), as did the San Antonio Vegetarian Society. Several of our volunteers fanned out into the crowds and gave out Why Vegans and talked to people about veganism. Lots of people were very receptive.
-Linda Howard, 4/23/06

I handed out 2,200 Even Ifs today at UC Irvine. About 30 told me they received one last time I was there and were very affected, and about a third of those said they were now vegetarian.
-Stewart Solomon, 4/11/06

While handing out 481 Why Vegans at the Galleria Mall today, a police officer asked to see what I was passing out. As I continued to leaflet, she read the Why Vegan with a concerned look on her face. After studying the pamphlet for about fifteen minutes, she asked me for more pamphlets so that she could share them with her family, and she said that it was very good information. She took 50 extra Why Vegans and a GCFE.
-Eugene Khutoryansky, 4/9/06

Vanessa L and I distributed 1,677 booklets at UC Berkeley's Cal Day, when admitted students and their families are invited to come to campus and see if they want to attend the school. VO's lit is clearly attention-grabbing: I saw students walking around reading them even in the midst of the fray.
-Victor Tsou, 4/23/06

I joined an animal rights meetup group (Brad, Jen, Denise & Eric) on South Beach and we distributed about 500 Why Vegans from 8-11pm on Sat. night at Lincoln Road Mall. We also had ARFF's body T.V. with Meet Your Meat running (below). We knew there would be a very high traffic the night before Easter. The response was very positive. We were positioned right next to a blood mobile and in front of the Arts Center. We were at a crosswalk where people often piled up waiting for the light to change and would watch the video. 5-10 minutes after we started the video, a man working at the blood mobile came over, watched the video, read the WV, and began distributing our literature like a madman. I have never seen anybody respond like that. He hardly asked any questions at all. He just jumped right in and worked with us for 2 hours. I asked, "Aren't you going to get in trouble for not working?" He said "No, I'm in charge at the blood mobile." He said he was not vegetarian but was going to change his diet.
