Activist Profile: Leah Wagner

Leah Wagner

Continuing our series of activist profiles, we meet our resident nomad, Leah Wagner. All across the U.S., Leah has reached 42,237 individuals – including her single-day record of 1,957 students reached at the University of Missouri!

Here’s an excerpt:

What was your most positive leafleting experience and why?

So many positives! One guy came back by me later showing me his vegetarian sandwich that he got for lunch after reading the brochure. I love to see people making an instant change, the brochures are so very effective!

What would you say to individuals hesitant about leafleting?

If you are hesitant due to anxieties of any sort, well, leafleting is a breeze compared to what the animals have to go through! Imagine their anxieties.

If you are hesitant because you work full time with no breaks, try leafleting concerts or festivals, or even people walking around city streets, or anywhere!

You can read Leah’s full profile here.

Notes from Our Members

Warped Tour
The Humane League and Animal Awareness Project hit the road to cover Warped Tour stops in AZ, CA, and NM! You can support their work here.

Leafleting at the beach was great today! Four teenage girls eagerly received their booklets:
     Girl #1: “Ugh, I can’t look at these pictures!”
     Girl #2 (to me): “Are you vegetarian?”
     Me: “Yes.”
     Girl #4: “What do you eat?”
     Me (while giving them Guides): “Everything other than our animal friends – easiest thing I’ve ever done!”
     Girl #1: “That’s it! Let’s do it! I can’t look at these pictures…I need to go vegetarian. Seriously, let’s do it! Now! Done.”
     Girls #2–4: “Okay; Okay; Done!”

Estafani joined me at City College of San Francisco today. It was a Vegan Outreach pamphlet over two years ago that prompted her to go veg. She’s a great leafleter and her acceptance rate was awesome. Together, we reached 654 students despite the wind and rain. Lots of great conversations, too!
—Brian Grupe, 5/19/10

Team Triangle and friends were out leafleting the annual Animal Protection Society walk. As walkers crossed the finish line, we congratulated them with the hopefully life-changing award of a Compassionate Choices. Many people were happy we were making this connection.

MSU student
A Montana State student studies the case for compassion after getting a booklet from Bonnie Goodman.

I left Steger under cover of darkness so I could get to Wright State University by 7:30am. The sixth person I offered a booklet to let me know that getting an Even If You Like Meat in the past is what moved her to become vegan. She had not gotten a Guide, so I gave her one. Heard from many other vegans / vegetarians.

Good day of leafleting at the University of Oregon. Some students accepted booklets saying, “Yes, I love animals.” After leafleting for a while, I saw that right across the street was a booth that advertised vegan food. He had sold out of vegan burgers, saying that a lot of people had been buying them. So I bought a pita with hummus.
—Cobie deLespinasse, 5/28/10

At the Taylor Swift concert, I met one person who told me that the Why Vegan? pamphlet is what caused them to go vegetarian two years ago.
—Eugene Khutoryansky, 5/27/10

Anna Hasenmueller
Anna Hasenmueller takes the animals’ message to the students of Middle Tennessee State.

Colin, Ron, and I had good acceptance at Jefferson High School. A number of people said they were upset by what they saw. One guy said, “Yeah, but what can you do?” I told him and his friends they could reduce their consumption of factory farmed animals; they seemed willing to think about this. One teacher took one and said that since we (the leafleters) all looked so healthy, that maybe there was something to this that he should look into.
—Yvonne LeGrice, 5/27/10

Jane and I got good feedback at the University of Cincinnati, with people stopping to say they were moved by the booklet. One person pointed out their vegan lunch, and another said she would probably go veg as a result of getting the booklet.
