Notes from Vegan Outreach

Victory for Victor!

Vegan Outreach's Victor Tsou has been leafleting colleges throughout the west coast with great success, usually giving out over 1,000 booklets per day. In the following weeks, he will need housing in or near the following: Moscow (ID), Las Vegas, Albuquerque, Tucson, and San Diego. If you would be willing to house this dedicated young man for 1 - 3 nights, please email Victor at info (at) Thanks!


New Spanish Booklet

Ever since the last copy of Vegan Outreach's Por Qué Vegano? was distributed earlier this year, there has been no Spanish-language booklet available for exposing factory farms and spreading vegetarianism. Vegan Outreach has recently received a grant from PETA to cover part of the costs of printing another version of PQV.

We are now seeking to raise funds for printing and shipping this new booklet. As pointed out several years ago by a leafleter in DC:

More and more people in the United States use Spanish as their primary language, so having effective literature like Why Vegan? available in Spanish is absolutely essential.
     During COK’s feed-ins, I’ve found that people who speak Spanish are generally grateful that we have copies of Por Qué Vegano? on hand. In fact, many people have been so happy that we have Spanish literature that they’ve even taken extras for their friends and family members before having even read the booklet!
     Por Qué Vegano? is an increasingly crucial advocacy tool that hopefully will be used by more and more activists. Remember, it’s not only English-speakers who eat animal products. We need to reach everyone!

If you believe that it is important to have this booklet available for outreach in Spanish-speaking communities and countries, please make a special, tax-deductible contribution today. You can contribute securely at, or send a check or money order to:

Seasonal Product of the Week

Brian Patrick's vote is for "plain old peaches. If you haven't had any in a while, this year's crop has been outstanding. Each one is so juicy I have to be careful about eating them at work for fear of staining my tie. Just the right amount of sweetness as well. I've had ones from New Jersey, Georgia, South Carolina, and bought straight from the orchard a few miles outside of Washington, DC. Each one has its own character but never disappointing."

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


Notes from All Over

Navratilova Goes Out with Win

"A month shy of her 50th birthday, Navratilova closed out her competitive career Saturday night in fitting fashion: a mixed doubles championship at the U.S. Open for her 59th Grand Slam title."

Martina went vegetarian in 1993, the year Vegan Outreach officially formed. Coincidence?


A Scoop of Lies

MFA's Has New Videos

MFA now offers sample cooking videos on-line, from the delightful Colleen Patrick-Goudreau and Alka Chandna of Compassionate Cooks (Vegetarian Cooking) and the irrepressible Dr. Michael Greger (Maximum Nutrition). You can also order full versions of these videos from Vegan Outreach.


Notes from Our Members

At the Galleria Mall, I handed out 541 Why Vegans today. One man asked me if I am concerned about all the paper I am using. I told him that the environmental benefits of vegetarianism are such that if I get even one person today to go vegetarian, this will more than compensate for all the paper I used. He ended up agreeing with me.
-Eugene Khutoryansky, 9/9/06

While leafleting at U. Rochester today, this was my favorite exchange:
     Me: Brochure to help animals? (I tend to hand out EIYLM backside-up)
Dude: (takes one) Sorry man, but I like meat.
     Me: Turn it over.
Dude: (reading out loud) "'Even if you like meat.' Whoa!!!"
-Hoss Firooznia, 9/8/06

I handed out 200 EIs at Eastern CT State U. in less time than it took to drive there. I also gave out a GCFE to a girl who said she was veg after I gave her the first booklet. She then gave the EI to her friend and said, "You've got to read this right now!"
-Joshua Warchol, 9/7/06

At Illinois State University, I gave out 970 copies of EI, 4 GCFE, and 2 AML. The exchange of the day was when a female student came past the second time. I was unsure if she had taken the booklet the first time, and many people turn me down the first time and later have a change of heart, so I always offer.
     Me: Brochure against animal cruelty?
Her: You've already changed my life.
     Me: How about some recipes to go along with that? (She took a GCFE.)
-Joe Espinosa, 9/6/06
