Notes from Vegan Outreach

The Most Conservative Estimate

Activists around the world have now distributed more than 5.7 million Vegan Outreach booklets. Assuming only a net 1% change for booklets, 100+ million land animals will be saved from the cruelties of modern animal agriculture over the next 50 years.

Thanks so much to everyone who has made this possible!

Notes from All Over

Meat Substitutes Pass the Taste Test

Excerpt: "You can call it mock meat. Fake steak. Pretend pork. Faux franks. Truth is, many meat substitutes are remarkably close in appearance and taste to the original. In fact, a recent test of these products produced encouraging results."

 

Five Reasons Why Americans Must Stop Eating Animals

Excerpt: "It is consumers, after all, who drive the market. Agribusiness will change--rapidly--when our buying habits change. You are more powerful than you think. Purchase with consciousness and compassion, and the whole world will thank you."

 

Veg Out with Hawks' Vegan Player

Excerpt: "In June, Atlanta Hawks guard Salim Stoudamire abandoned his diet of junk food and animal-based foods to become the Hawks' only vegan player.... Stoudamire recently sat down to talk about being a vegan in a sport dominated by carnivores..."

 

Feedback from Our Members

I was given the Even If You Like Meat brochure at the University of Michigan last week and I have decided to go vegan. I want to thank you for helping me come to this decision and encourage people to continue this form of outreach as it truly does raise awareness and make a difference!

Here's feedback from an acquaintance who came to my party and got an Even If:

I was totally inspired by your gruesome pamphlet, and spent the rest of the weekend watching Meet your Meat and other such videos. I've now been vegan for 2 weeks.

-Unny Nambudiripad, 4/5/07

Victor Tsou passes along this story:
My girlfriend M. was talking to her friend B. today. Over the years, B. has been learning about veganism from M. Today, B. told M. that she is now a vegetarian. And why? Because she was handed an Even If at her college in Kansas. After a brief, excited discussion, M. ascertained that I was the one who handed B. the leaflet on my recent tour through the state. What an amazing coincidence! And just think of how many people we don't hear from who make a switch with the help of our collective efforts!
