Notes from Our Members

The power of Team Vegan. Jon reports from SUNY Cortland: “Jose came up to tell me that he got a booklet from us earlier today. ‘No more animal products for me. I’m serious!’”

Despite the rain, nearly 100% take rate at Kean University, and almost 95% at Union County College. One girl was really enthusiastic and might be helping out in the future. We had a really productive conversation with a student who challenged our views with questions, but we answered them all and he went away interested.
—Team Vegan members Katie Pryor and Lisa Hines, 2/28/12

Phenomenal outreach at University of Texas El Paso, where Victoria and I reached over 2,200 students. Lots interested, lots reading, many conversations.
     Today was a huge day at the University of Oklahoma, where we were joined by Logan, and reached 2,100+ students. Way more vegs now than when I first came here three years ago! One mega-Christian dude mentioned going veg after getting a booklet three years ago.

At Naugatuck Valley Community College, one student told me he has reduced his animal product consumption by half since receiving an Even If You Like Meat from me last semester. Another student said she went vegetarian in June and wanted support – we talked a bit and she got a Guide and my card. A professor gave me his card, and said he would like to interview me for the school paper so the students can get a different viewpoint on animals raised for food. As I was leaving, a student I had leafleted earlier asked me if he could help me. I gave him a stack of 50 Compassionate Choices, and he started immediately!

Brian sends this picture of Sitara, who was prompted to go vegan because of a booklet and has helped him leaflet.

Took a vacation day and was out of bed at 1 am to make it to Central Michigan University, where I reached over 1,200 students. Good conversations too, including several about harm reduction with students currently unwilling to go veg. Eight more vacation days that will be used in our work to decrease suffering and death.
—Team Vegan member Joe “Stop” Espinosa, 3/1/12

Huge new record with Eleanor at American River College. Lots of students seemed very interested; I chatted with one guy for a solid 10 minutes who will probably go veg. Also met a number of people who are almost veg / already veg and thinking about going further.
     One of the most interesting people of the day worked at Foster Farms many years ago. He said the booklet was totally correct and it was a horrible job. There was a constant ammonia cloud inside the farm that made him feel sick constantly.
     Laguna Creek High School was simply awesome. Tons of these students were already aware. Lots of comments like, “Oh yeah I’ve been hearing about this,” or “Yeah definitely, let me check that out,” or my favorite: “Dude, my brothers have been vegan for eight years!”
—Team Vegan member Brian “the” Grupe, 3/5/12

Also at SUNY Cortland, Team Vegan member John Oberg met Vivi, who was very shocked by the information in the booklet. She’s moving back to France in a week and said she wants to get involved with exposing this animal abuse there.

Great day with Eric at Penn State Mont Alto and Shippensburg University. The best was at the end. Shortly after chatting with two young women who take part in the school’s animal advocacy club, and exchanging contact info, two separate young women walked up to Eric and were asking him questions about going veg. They were really intrigued and asked about 10 minutes worth of questions. Eric did a great job responding with answers that were reasonable, honest, and easy to understand.
—Team Vegan member Jon Camp, 3/1/12

Unbeknownst to me, it was high school senior appreciation day at Irvine Valley College. When I found out, I almost passed out with excitement. At least 600 (of 1,500) booklets went into eager high school students’ goody bags. You couldn’t slap the giggle outta me.
     Chatted with a security guard whose wife is veg with three vegan cousins. He can’t stand animal abuse, but thinks some animals are here for food so he’s OK with that, just not their abuse. I asked him what kind of treatment can we expect if their only purpose is to die…the interest lies only in their dead bodies…how good can it really get? Especially since they’re voiceless and utterly defenseless. He was silent.
