Notes from Vegan Outreach

Help Jon and Joe Reach More Students!

In early February, Jon Camp will embark on a 10-week college leafleting tour that will encompass 19 states. In order to make this tour as economically efficient as possible, he'll be staying with members of Vegan Outreach. He has found housing for just about every region he'll be in, but still needs lodging in or near the following: Starkville, MS; Memphis, TN; Jonesboro, Little Rock, Conway, and Fayetteville, AR.

In mid-March, Joe Espinosa will be doing a mini-leafleting tour throughout the eastern regions of ND, SD, and NE. He'll need housing anywhere close to Interstate 29 between Grand Forks, ND and Omaha, NE.

If you'd be willing to house either of these courteous, dedicated individuals for 1-3 nights, this would help them reach thousands more students with the animals' plight. If so, please email info (at) veganoutreach (dot) org. Thanks so much!

Notes from All Over

Vegetarian Celebrities

Vegan Outreach doesn't tie the veg message to celebrities, in part because of the changeability of celebrities' diets. But for those who are swayed by the habits of famous people, ABC has compiled this list.

 

Notes from Our Members

Your organization is among the most effective because you celebrate whatever large or small steps people take towards compassionate lifestyles; because you focus your energies on a few proven strategies and thus focus your light like a laser; and because you bring the message to those who are most likely to hear it: open-minded young people on college campuses. We are also inspired and informed by your essays written for activists. We appreciate your grounded, rational, ethically robust essays. We believe that it's time for compassion and respect for other animals to become mainstream sentiments in American society. Thank you for all your work to make this happen.

While leafleting high schools right before break, we met a number of vegetarians, vegans, and a vegan wannabe. Met a student who used to be vegan, but stopped due to family pressures. We gave her a GCFE and we discussed going vegan again. She plans to do so. Overheard a discussion in which two students went through the Why Vegan page by page. A friend joined them and immediately was handed a WV so that he could enter the discussion.

Leafleting in Center City, Philadelphia yesterday went well; a number of people expressed real interest in going vegetarian. We also got some anecdotal evidence about the prior week's leafleting: one of our members was at their dentist's office a few days ago, and the dentist talked about how she got one of our leaflets the prior week and realized she needed to go veg.
