Founded in 1993, Vegan Outreach is a 501c3 nonprofit organization working to end violence towards animals. We seek a future when sentient animals are no longer exploited as commodities.
We focus on reaching the people who are motivated enough to make changes now—of which there are always many in our target audience who just need some additional encouragement. By steadily increasing the number of vegans we're laying the groundwork to more quickly reach a tipping point.
For the 2018-19 school year, our primary goals are to:
Vegan mentors in over 1,000 cities and dozens of countries
Nutrition recommendations from a registered dietitian
Making the Switch Easier
Campaigns to add vegan entrees at restaurants and other foodservice establishments.
Never shaming people, but rather embracing them in making changes at a sustainable pace that works for them.
Putting the emphasis of veganism on avoiding obvious animal products, but using one's time and energy advocating to others rather than focusing on personal purity or trace ingredients—see Talking to Friends and Family.
Reaching a Broad Range of People
Outreach in remote regions—we've found much interest in locations outside of big cities and coastal areas.
While based in the United States, we also have an extensive presence in Australia, Canada, Mexico, New Zealand, and most recently India.
