Notes from Vegan Outreach

CSU student
A student at Cal State Los Angeles is engrossed with learning the truth.

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!

A great 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.
     When out doing this work, we’ll occasionally get a snide comment or two. But such comments will most certainly be offset by those whose lives will be radically impacted by our willingness to be brave and speak up for the animals. It’s so vital that we get out to do this.

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!

I am 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.

One person 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.

Cassandra 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!”
—Eileen Botti, 8/30/10

Lunchtime 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.
—Jeff Boghosian, 8/31/10

At Roosevelt 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 the leaflets.
—Leslie Patterson, 9/1/10

Darina Smith
More compassion in action in Indianapolis, thanks to Darina Smith!

Brian 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.
—Vic Sjodin, 9/1/10

The acceptance 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.
     It was a really great day! This morning during my drive I was having some extra heavy thoughts about suffering animals, so I felt fortunate to be able to do something to help them.
