Notes from Our Members

From the LA Warped Tour stop, Nikki reports: “Not only did Lauren commit to cutting animals out of her diet, but she also said, ‘It’s not enough to say it’s not cool – can I help?’ She and her friend took 100 booklets and hit the crowd!”
Anthony Policano
Anthony Policano spends his birthday helping San Diego Warped attendees make compassionate choices, while the great Kath Rogers (right) waits for her next encounter. Below, two SD rockers are deep in learning the truth.

What a day! Happy and appreciative people at Grossmont College, with good constructive conversations. One young lady came back with her copy of Compassionate Choices saying, “Thank you for this. I’m done, and going vegan right now.” And another student came back saying, “I want to go veg but don’t know where to start. What should I do?” BAM!
     More good interactions and comments at Cuyamaca College! Met a chef who doesn’t eat meat because “it’s insane” and said, “Every time you come here, you make me cry.” She was very excited to hear about alternatives to eggs in baking. She also said her daughter got a VO booklet somewhere and it made her vegan!

Another great day at Union Square (New York), where Danielle and I reached 500 new people! Everyone was very receptive. One woman was so excited that we were taking action for the animals that she felt inspired and took brochures for all of her friends and coworkers. We met people who were so motivated by the Compassionate Choices literature that they decided to go vegan for lunch that day. Promising first steps!

San Diego concertgoers

Very nice students at Malcolm X College. One woman stopped to tell me she spends her time helping humans not animals, and I pointed out it does not take extra time to choose vegetarian meals and we can prevent a huge amount of suffering by doing so.
—Leslie Patterson, 6/22/11

At the University of Illinois, Chicago, I heard from an impressive 15 vegetarians – including one who stated that getting the booklet from us there in the past is what moved him to become vegetarian – and 8 vegans. The city that was once known as the slaughterhouse capital of the world is changing to one of the most veg-friendly cities in the world.
