Notes from Vegan Outreach

Adopt a College Powers On

Even before the end of February, volunteers for Adopt a College have already handed out over 190,000 booklets at more than 250 colleges from Mexico to Vancouver. This is far above last Spring's total at this time (123,608). Overall, activists have now leafleted at over 1,000 schools!

As we move into March and spring approaches, you can help speak out for the animals. If you've never leafleted before and would like some help getting started, please contact us – info (at) veganoutreach (dot) org.

Notes from All Over

Slaughterhouse Follow-Up

Thanks to DawnWatch, we learn that, "Meatpacker to Shut Down In Wake of Massive Recall."

We'll give the last word to the Houston Chronicle: "[N]o one there took any care to hide it. Like all meat processing plants, the facility was supervised by federal inspectors. And because the plant reportedly was chosen randomly, there's little reason to doubt that what happened there has been repeated elsewhere."

Notes from Our Members

One of the 13-year-old soccer players I coach wants to be vegetarian, so I gave her dad a few booklets. The next day he said, "Wow! After looking through them, we are not sure if we want to even eat any meat again."
-Megan Dickerson, 2/21/08

JC Corcoran leaflets at the University of Georgia.

At De Anza College, a woman told me she has drastically reduced her meat consumption since receiving an Even If You Like Meat in the past. She said if she tries to eat chicken, she starts crying and cannot do it (a very appropriate response, I might add). Further, her husband, formerly a big meat eater, has recently cut down his meat consumption after they looked through the EI together. She said she was taking another EI because she keeps giving her copy away to other people.
-Victor Tsou, 2/20/08

At Medgar Evers College, one student asked for 30 copies for a class presentation. Another walked by me, saying, "You already gave me one this morning." Then she walked another block down the hill, stopped, turned around, came back up the hill, and asked me all about how to go vegan. I referred her to the website and gave her a Guide to Cruelty-Free Eating. Finally, as I was walking away to warm up somewhere briefly, a student ran up the hill after me saying, "Lady in the purple coat! Can I have a few more of your books for my friends??"
-Eileen Botti, 2/20/08

At the University of Texas, one student stopped to tell me that he agreed with the booklet. At first, however, he thought it would be too hard to change and dismissed the idea. Yet after being given the booklet on multiple occasions, each time a reminder of the truth, he just couldn't ignore it any longer. He has now cut down his meat consumption considerably.
-Sarah Bryant, 2/20/08

Students at the University of Miami told Casey that a number of classes today ended up being dominated entirely by discussions about the pamphlets he was handing out.
-Eugene Khutoryansky, reporting for Casey Constable (currently touring the southeast), 2/18/08

At the University of Houston, I experimented with giving EIs to males and Compassionate Choices to females, whereas my brother Marc (at right) loved using the CCs for everyone.
