Notes from Vegan Outreach

AAC and Non

For fall semester, Adopt a College activists have handed out over 300,000 booklets at 336 schools across North America -- closing in on the record of 344,160!

Vegan Outreach is now listing all reported non-campus leafleting! Thanks to Anne Green, Victor Tsou, and Jack Norris for putting the list, website, and automated database together. Anne has compiled the non-school leafleting numbers reported to our AAC email list since 2004. If you are interested in joining the list, see #4 on this page.

Thanks to the generous support of our donors, Vegan Outreach has now sent out over 1.6 million pamphlets in 2007!

Congratulations to everyone who has done such incredible work reaching thousands of new people every single day with the otherwise hidden realities of modern agribusiness!


Auch wenn Sie Fleisch mögen...

Thanks to volunteers Kristina Musholt and Johannes Duerrschmidt (with help from Anne Green), we now have an HTML German translation of Even If You Like Meat (see also this older PDF).

All versions listed on our site are translations only (i.e., they do not represent data specific to the country or countries where the language is spoken). If you are interested in translating one of our booklets into a language not yet represented on our site, please contact us.


Product of the Week

Abigail: I nominate Couch vegan belts. They are extremely durable, look great, and are significantly cheaper than most nice vegan belts online.

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


Notes from All Over

JAMA Reviews Bird Flu

"The message is that pandemics are not born but rather are man-made--and that there is a price to pay for the modern poultry industry, in which fowl are raised in closed, stressful, unhealthy facilities, facilitating mutation and dissemination of the bird flu virus. Greger writes that '[It] may take a pandemic with a virus like H5N1 before the world realizes the true cost of cheap chicken.' The book is timely, well-researched, and particularly incisive on farming methods worldwide, especially those for poultry." Read more; visit the book's website.

Swanky Veg

From Ali Berman, a driving force at Student's Animal Guardian Alliance, comes Swanky Veg -- high fashion meets cruelty-free.


Money and "Science"

Via, from the New York Times: "Many health advocates were surprised earlier this month when a children's health coalition that includes federal agencies and professional medical associations contradicted government warnings about mercury contamination and recommended that women of childbearing age eat more fish.... [T]he National Fisheries Institute [provided] $1,000 honoraria to each of the group's 14 members, with an extra $500 each to the group's four executive committee members.... The National Fisheries Institute also gave the coalition $60,000 for its education campaign." Read more.


Notes from Our Members

A friend once explained to me that she was vegan because she didn't want animals to suffer. But it wasn't until I received your Even If You Like Meat booklet that I truly understood the case for being vegan. Thank you for showing millions of people what is going on.

There was a massive high school field trip visiting the Galleria Mall today. The vast majority of students took a Why Vegan from me [1,250 total distributed]. One girl mentioned that she used to be a vegetarian but had to quit because of health problems. As soon as I gave her a GCFE and told her that there is a lot of information on nutrition in it, lots and lots of the other students nearby demanded that they also get a GCFE, each telling me that they are former or current or wannabe vegetarians. Even one of the teachers insisted that she needed a GCFE.

Leafleting at Hartnell College, I heard, "Man, and when they shoot the pigs with that captive bolt gun...that's messed up!" "Yeah, man, it sure is." I looked around and it was a group of 6 or 7 students all with EIs in their hands. One student joined them and was immediately handed an EI by one of his peers with a "you have to read this." I had so many good interactions that I could write for another 30 minutes. It was truly a great day with lots of positive outreach.
-Miranda Robbins, 10/25/07

The craziest thing happened as I was leaving Alamance Community College: a woman yelled, "Stop -- you, stop!" She had noticed people in her class had some of my leaflets so she gets up after class had already started and runs uphill from the building in the very back of campus just so she can get a leaflet. She was so excited, I honestly thought she was going to cry.
