News from Vegan Outreach
UPDATED: URGENT New Printing Needed
With our Adopt a College program now in full swing again, on any given weekday, Vegan Outreach is responsible for many of the largest “events for the animals” occurring in the United States. For example: in the final three weeks of September, our volunteers handed out an average of 850 Why Vegan? and Try Vegetarian! booklets per day on campuses across the country. Jon Camp, working part-time for Vegan Outreach, single-handedly passed out over 4,000 brochures to college students during that period. And each month, we continue to reach many tens of thousands of people at concerts, festivals, and other events.
These actions have translated in thousands of new vegetarians and millions of animals saved from a life of misery!
Vegan Outreach now needs to do another printing of Why Vegan by mid-October if we are not to run out. We need to raise $10,000 so we can print another 250,000; we've received $475 so far.
You may think that your donation won't matter. But over 19,000 people get this enewsletter -- so if everyone pitched in, we could meet this goal in less than a week!
Legal Help Needed
Some public universities are denying Vegan Outreach volunteers access to their campuses. If you are an attorney and can help us out with the case law, we would really appreciate it. We have a pretty good head start as you can see here.

From Our Members
I love the Adopt
a College program. I live in LA
and can do several colleges. I'd like to distribute
Why Vegans; I became vegan instantly
when someone handed me one about five years
I just received a pamphlet from you folks today
on the University of Wisconsin-Madison campus--thank
you so much for your work. Though an avowed
animal lover, I still needed to be jolted awake
on the issue of the American food industry.
Thank you so much for bringing these painful
truths to light--I'll spread the word as far
as I can.
Thank you for giving me hope that our species
isn’t utterly cruel, and thank you for
helping untold numbers of animals.
Meaningful Life is the best
piece of writing on veg advocacy that I’ve
seen. I wish every vegan would read it.
I came across your booklet at a store earlier
this year. I have now been vegan for three months,
and I feel so much better – I lost weight
and have much more energy.
