Between April 11th and April 15th, Jon Camp plans on leafleting the U of Southern ME, U VT, U NH, U MA in Amherst, and U RI. The following week, he will be leafleting in Providence, RI for a day. If you would be willing to house him for a night or two, or wish to leaflet with him, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks to everyone who has housed Jon during his past tours! Because of you, we have been able to reach tens of thousands of college students with the animals' plight.

you for opening my eyes! We need
to get the truth out there to the

and helping as many people go vegan
as possible. Thank you for everything
