Switch: How to Change Things When Change Is Hard


One of the ways Vegan Outreach makes sure you get the biggest bang for the buck is by studying widely – marketing, psychology, sociology, etc.

A new book useful for people seeking to improve their activism is Switch, by Chip and Dan Heath. We now have a summary of this book, covering how it applies to our work together for the animals.

If you want to learn more and maximize your impact, please give our overview a read today!


Notes from Our Members

WCSU students
Students at Western Connecticut State are engrossed in learning the truth.

I leafleted near Brock University’s bus stop area and saw many students reading the leaflets as they waited. A few students told me how much they love steak, but once they opened a leaflet, they had many questions for me and seemed genuinely concerned about the animals. One young lady read the whole leaflet then said to me, “That’s it, I'm not eating meat again.” It was a great day!
—John Sakars, 10/1/10

At Denver’s Auraria Campus, I had numerous conversations with people who were interested in going veg, and met a lot of “already veg” people too. A young girl working for Children International took a pamphlet and said, “Oh, I want to be a vegetarian!” with longing in her voice. I gave her a Guide; she gave me a big hug. An older gentleman took a Compassionate Choices, paged through it, and then said, “Oh, Boca burgers, those are so good!” and went on to say that we should leave God’s creatures alone. He thanked me for leafleting and gave me a hug and a kiss on the cheek before he walked away. A woman who took a leaflet came back moments later to thank me for doing outreach and to tell me she and her husband went vegan a couple of months ago. I gave her a Guide – she was thrilled.
—Barbara Bear, 9/30/10

After reading your booklet, I was moved to tears and, subsequently, vomited for several minutes. I will do everything in my power to share the truth about agribusiness with my friends, colleagues and loved ones.

World Veg Fest

It was great to table at World Veg Fest. At least ten college students from different schools said they had received our literature in the past. Got emails of over a dozen people looking to help out. Also met a woman (right) who went vegan in 1996 after receiving a booklet from Jack Norris at the University of Wisconsin, Madison.
—Brian Grupe, 10/3/10

At the University of Maine, a student said he read the entire pamphlet and has decided that he really wants to try to go vegetarian. He was happy to receive a Guide. Another said, “I HATE factory farming,” and motioned like he was going to barf. Yet another student said he would share the information in the pamphlet with others. I told him about Adopt a College.
—Lana Smithson, 9/30/10

At the University of Wisconsin, Oshkosh, one girl said, “I already have one. I read it, and I like it. Thank you.” I met an ethics professor who was interested in using the Even If You Like Meat booklet as part of an assignment for her students. I met a guy who had first seen VO stuff down in Texas, then at a school in Milwaukee. He said he wanted to get involved and gave me his contact info.
—Fred Tyler, 10/1/10

UTEP students
Pretty sneaky, sis; Nikki Benoit uses her camera’s phone to catch students intently studying VO’s booklets at the University of Texas, El Paso (above) and the University of New Mexico.
UNM students

Leafleting at my school (Muskegon Community College) was a great success! I had a lot of students thank me for handing out the pamphlets and tell me that they have always been interested in becoming vegetarian.
—Deanna McDonald, 10/5/10

Teamed up with a local group to leaflet the Race for the Cure. We reached 2,800 folks, including many high school students. More than 80% were open to looking at the info. A positive and fun event to do, lots of good energy from receptive and open-minded people.
—Jeff Boghosian, 10/10/10

It was great at Moorpark College and Cal Lutheran University! It charges the soul to hear people respond to my “Info to help animals?” with “YES!” “Of course!” “Always!” “I love animals!” The next best part is watching stunned faces walk aimlessly while reading their newfound Earth-shattering leaflet.
—Nikki Benoit, 10/7/10

At Sam Houston State, lots of students mentioned getting a booklet in the past. One student – Michael – took a booklet, read it, then came back to help me leaflet – we reached over 1,250 students!
—Casey Constable, 10/7/10

When I gave my persuasive speech in my oral communications class at Daytona State, I was able to hand out a lot of Vegan Outreach booklets – some classmates asked for more. Thanks!
—CJ, 11/3/10

Great day! Yvonne and I hit Portland Community College, Portland State, Clackamas Community College, and Jefferson High School. I’ve never given out so many Guides at a school as I did in our time at Portland State – I could have given out many more, but I ran out!
—Phil Letten, 10/6/10

Ventura students
Person to person to person; a student at Ventura Community College shares new insights about making Compassionate Choices.

Right before I left Gainesville State College, a professor asked if I would come speak to his ecology class. I gave a five-minute spiel and then we did 20 minutes of Q&A. It was hugely productive. The professor told me in front of the class that he loved my manner of discussion and that everything I said was 100% factually accurate. He invited me to come back when I’m next in town.
—Jon Camp, 10/11/10

Front Range Community College had a super-receptive crowd! A lot of people were really excited to get a booklet. At the University of Northern Colorado, one guy mentioned to me, “Yeah, I got one of these about a year ago at a concert, and I’ve been vegetarian ever since.”
—Jeni Haines, 9/27/10
