Notes from Vegan Outreach

Eileen Botti

Good Luck, Eileen!

Eileen Botti, Vegan Outreach’s longtime New York Outreach Coordinator, is moving on. One of our all-time leading leafleters, Eileen has done an incredible job, leafleting in every kind of weather, and even after she lost her voice.

It is a great loss for VO, but we are sure Eileen will continue to be hugely successful in her efforts to make the world a better place. We have been – and continue to be – very fortunate to have her as a colleague and friend. Full post here.


Before You Secede: Texans Needed for Jon

In October, Jon Camp, VO’s Director of Outreach, will be traveling throughout Texas as part of a college outreach tour. In order to make the tour cost-efficient, Jon will be staying with those willing to offer their place to him for a few nights. Jon has found housing in some parts of Texas, but still needs a place to stay in or near San Antonio, McAllen, San Marcos, Killeen, Waco, Nacogdoches, College Station, and Beaumont. If you’d be willing to house America’s Most Courteous Houseguest for 1–3 nights, please contact him via jon(at)veganoutreach(dot)org. Thank you!


The Payoff of Eileen’s Efforts, Jon’s Journeys, Nikki’s ’Nthusiasm…

Citrus student
Nikki spies another student ready to care about her food choices at Citrus College.

Our pal Paul sends along this excerpt from a meat industry journal:

College students are putting a high priority on the food choices and dining programs offered, even when choosing which school to attend, according to Technomic.

Technomic’s College and University Consumer Trend Report showed 44 percent of college students polled indicated that their school’s dining program was at least somewhat important in deciding where to enroll.

The survey showed 21 percent of students limit their consumption of meat by sticking to a vegetarian or vegan diet, eating only certain types of meat, or eating meat only occasionally.

More than 1 in 5!

Notes from Our Members

Chaffey students
Bodacious Brian leads two more Chaffey College students to the truth.

I received your Compassionate Choices, and would like to request a free Guide. I was really turned on to the idea of “cruelty-free eating” by this line in the booklet:
     “If you decide to eliminate animal-derived foods from your diet, please remember: the objective is to reduce suffering, not to achieve personal purity or perfection.”
     I’m glad to read that, because now I’d like to follow a path towards reducing animal suffering through intelligent choices.

Thanks for your enewsletter. Previously, I got one of your booklets, and after reading it, I can’t eat meat ever again. I think about some poor little creature.… I’m working to convert my husband.

From a recent batch of Guide requests:

Heard about it at Warped Tour 2010 and thought about going vegan. I tried, failed…then after this year’s Warped Tour, I got another pamphlet and I decided to do whatever it takes to go vegan.

Awesome Alexandra
Awesome Alexandra provides the animals a voice at Santa Monica College.

A friend showed me one of your brochures. I knew it was bad but wow.
—ML, 7/12/11

I went to a concert in Comerica Park in Detroit. Your brochure changed the way I see animals.
—JZ, 7/9/11

While waiting in an office at Lehigh University, I saw a pamphlet on the table that a professor had distributed. I had tried being vegetarian a few years ago, but it only lasted for two weeks. I want to take another try at it.
—AK, 7/14/11

I got your booklet at the Warped Tour. You opened my eyes.
—AC, 7/20/11

A Compassionate Choices passed to me after an Animal Collective concert in VA on July 11 really made me start to think about a vegan diet in a completely different way.
