Notes from Vegan Outreach
Boo-Yah! AAC Activists Amaze!
Already this term, Adopt a College activists across the continent have reached nearly a quarter million students, at over 300 schools!
Each of these individuals was personally handed a detailed, documented booklet they can study, refer to, share with friends, etc.
This has been possible only because of your donations.
There is simply no way Vegan Outreach could print and ship this many booklets without your support!
Congratulations to everyone doing this powerful, effective, and necessary work!

Notes from All Over
Notes from Our Members
day at Western Illinois University,
where I reached over 900 students. One young
woman let me know she was so inspired by the
booklet that she posted it to her Facebook page.
One guy was wearing a Carcass shirt. I mentioned
that members of Carcass were surprisingly pro-veg.
He said that he knew, and there were a few other
similar bands who were veg. He mentioned that
he was eating more veg meals these days and
happily accepted a Guide.
I cried reading your booklet and
now feel the utmost need to be vegan.
Great day of final
summer outreach. It only took us 30 minutes
to pass out our remaining Warped Tour leaflets.
We had several young people run back asking
if they could have a leaflet. After I offered
one young man a booklet with “Oppose animal
cruelty?” he asked what it was about.
I asked him if he knew about factory farming
and he said he’d heard of it and that it’s
probably important for him to know more. He
and his girlfriend then happily accepted leaflets!
truly glad I got your booklet
on campus today. It is beyond disgusting. If
there is any way I can help, please let me know.
at the College of Marin told me
the Even If You Like Meat is what made
him go veg. Met one vegan and numerous other
vegetarians or people in the process of going
veg. One woman turned me down with “No,
I’m a carnivore” to which another student
sitting nearby and observing me said, “She’s
just ignorant.” Another woman said she
“loves her meat!” Unfortunately, she
was too far away for me to tell her that “her
meat” is someone else’s body.
and I reached an even 2,000 students
at Stony Brook University, where we ran into
many vegetarians and vegans. We had many great
interactions; e.g., one student said to her
friend, pointing to the booklet, “I think
I’m going to try this.” Another called
back to me after receiving a leaflet, “I
support this cause!”
leafleting at Phoenix College
went great today. Michael did a great job talking
people into trying veg. One student said he’d
try veg for a week. Another student was partly
veg and she got a Guide. Another student
said his family used to be completely veg but
is eating some expensive meat now, so he got
a Guide also.
University today, Victoria and
I had conversations with students concerned
about animal cruelty. They wanted to know how
they could help. It amazes me when people who
aren’t veg ask that, but it just goes to show
this isn’t obvious to everyone. So of course
we explained how they can make a huge difference
just through their food choices. We also saw
many students standing around reading and discussing
did a great job with one-on-one
talks at the College of New Jersey; two students
said they wanted to go veg, so they got Guides.
Saw many others reading the booklets.
rate at Keene State was fabulous!
Two students said they got a leaflet last semester;
one said she has really reduced her meat consumption,
and the other is now veg because of it! There
were many other positive interactions today;
e.g., one student said he’s interested in getting
involved in outreach.
