Link of the Week: Being vegan is the least I can do.
Vegan Outreach is looking for an attorney to serve as local counsel for a free speech case in Springfield, IL.

All costs incurred by local counsel during the case will be immediately reimbursed to local counsel and do not depend upon the successful outcome of the case.

Notes from All Over
Notes from Our Members
and I leafleted the local Lilith
Fair stop. Here are a few of our favorite interactions:
It rained on and off
the entire time Casey and I were at the Dallas
Warped Tour stop, but we still reached nearly
3,000 people. We heard from people who had gotten
the booklets in the past, and they told us how

Very light foot traffic at
Chaffey College yesterday, but I met four vegans
in the first 20 minutes – two of whom are eager

session at the University of Wisconsin, Madison.
The reception rate is always quite low at UW,

there throughout the years to know that our
time leafleting UW is time well spent. A number

handed out a lot of Guides. One young
man came up to say that Even If You Like

subject he had ever seen. He said that by asking
people to simply cut their meat consumption,

simultaneously compelling them to make changes

great interactions at the farmers’
market today! One of the women who came up to
thank me said it was a VO pamphlet she’d gotten
years ago at a concert that made her go vegan.
Another person was very interested and wanted
a booklet to show his coworkers. A couple was
eager to get involved; I gave them an AML
and my email so we can leaflet together.
