Activist Profile: Leah Wagner
Continuing our series of activist profiles, we meet our resident nomad, Leah Wagner. All across the U.S., Leah has reached 42,237 individuals – including her single-day record of 1,957 students reached at the University of Missouri!
Here’s an excerpt:
What was your most positive leafleting experience and why?
So many positives! One guy came back by me later showing me his vegetarian sandwich that he got for lunch after reading the brochure. I love to see people making an instant change, the brochures are so very effective!
What would you say to individuals hesitant about leafleting?
If you are hesitant due to anxieties of any sort, well, leafleting is a breeze compared to what the animals have to go through! Imagine their anxieties.
If you are hesitant because you work full time with no breaks, try leafleting concerts or festivals, or even people walking around city streets, or anywhere!

Notes from Our Members
at the beach was great today!
Four teenage girls eagerly received their booklets:
joined me at City College of San
Francisco today. It was a Vegan Outreach pamphlet
over two years ago that prompted her to go veg.
She’s a great leafleter and her acceptance
rate was awesome. Together, we reached 654 students
despite the wind and rain. Lots of great conversations,
Triangle and friends were
out leafleting the annual Animal Protection
Society walk. As walkers crossed the finish
line, we congratulated them with the hopefully
life-changing award of a Compassionate Choices.
Many people were happy we were making this connection.
Steger under cover of darkness
so I could get to Wright State University by
7:30am. The sixth person I offered a booklet
to let me know that getting an Even If You
Like Meat in the past is what moved her
to become vegan. She had not gotten a Guide,
so I gave her one. Heard from many other vegans
Good day of leafleting at
the University of Oregon. Some students accepted
booklets saying, “Yes, I love animals.”
After leafleting for a while, I saw that right
across the street was a booth that advertised
vegan food. He had sold out of vegan burgers,
saying that a lot of people had been buying
them. So I bought a pita with hummus.
Taylor Swift concert, I met one
person who told me that the Why Vegan? pamphlet
is what caused them to go vegetarian two years
Ron, and I had good acceptance
at Jefferson High School. A number of people
said they were upset by what they saw. One guy
said, “Yeah, but what can you do?” I told him and his friends they
could reduce their consumption of factory farmed animals;
they seemed willing to think about this. One
teacher took one and said that since we (the
leafleters) all looked so healthy, that maybe
there was something to this that he should look
and I got good feedback at the
University of Cincinnati, with people stopping
to say they were moved by the booklet. One person
pointed out their vegan lunch, and another said
she would probably go veg as a result of getting
