Above are Mia Amado and Kassy with the George Mason University mascot. Mia, a vegetarian freshman, was inspired to join in when she saw Dave Mosick and Kassy leafleting her school; and she’s now interested in starting an animal advocacy club on campus!
I had two great conversations at Millersville University: one with a student, Hailey, an understandably “angry vegan,” and one with another student who was excited to get the booklet and wants to go veg! I explained to Hailey why it’s so important for animals that we remain positive and advocate for animals, despite our unfortunate circumstances. I told her to remain hopeful – that if someone like her in Central PA can go vegan, so can other students at her school – and that she should be a positive activist (no one wants to join / listen to a group of negative people). My other conversation was with a non-veg student [below] who came up and told me he was inspired and now wants to start cutting meat from his diet. (See, Hailey! Hope!)—Kassy Ortega, 10/9/14
