Notes from Vegan Outreach

  Ricki decided to leaflet because, having changed after receiving a booklet, she wanted to get the information into others’ hands.


Thanks to the generosity of our thoughtful donors and the amazing efforts of our incredible activists, Vegan Outreach recently sent out our 17,000,000th booklet!

And through only the first day of spring, Adopt a College activists have reached an amazing 436,685 students at 535 schools across the continent!

Notes from Our Members

At Cal State Los Angeles, Gonzella changed because of a booklet one year ago and is going strong!

We reached over 3,000 students at George Mason U, and had a lot of great feedback. One student told us she got a leaflet two years ago and has been vegetarian ever since. Several students told us they were going to eat a vegetarian lunch, and many others said they were disturbed by what they read. Had a good conversation with a skeptical student, and afterwards she thanked me and said I gave her a lot to think about. Another student said that it was, by far, the best guide about vegetarian eating he has ever received.

At Northwestern University, one guy said he had been changing his diet after receiving the booklet from a friend. He liked the emphasis on preventing suffering and that veganism was not presented as all-or-nothing. A girl stopped who said she had been thinking about the booklet since receiving it last year, was upset about the animals but had questions about abortion and thought babies were more important. We talked for a couple minutes and ended up agreeing that caring about humans and animals does not have to be mutually exclusive; she was happy to receive a Guide.

Five years ago, Jan got a booklet at UMass Amherst, and went vegan that day! She recently helped David leaflet.

Over 600 students at Laney College, and 200+ at College of Alameda. Lots of great conversations. Two young ladies pledged to go vegan on the spot!
     At Diablo Valley College and Los Medanos College, Vic, Katie, and I reached over 3,000 students. Lots of productive and interesting conversations. No fewer than five people told me they were going to change their diets to do better by the animals.
     Today at the College of Marin, a number of students told me they read the booklet all the way through, and Carol and I met two people who had changed their diets because of getting a booklet in the past. One guy has been veg for three years after getting our brochure. His girlfriend also went veg with him!

Reached over 500 at New York U. Also met a vegan vender who had Compassionate Choices already on display! At Whole Foods, a cashier saw some booklets in my hand and said she got one at Borough of Manhattan Community College and even did a speech on it, too!

Lisa Hines
Lisa Hines spreads enlightenment at Essex County College.

Chris and I created quite the buzz on campus and met some really incredible people at Nassau Community College, where we reached over 1,500 students! Many people interested in learning more. In fact, the construction guys a floor below us yelled up and asked me what we were handing out. I told them and they were really engaged. After their lunch, they asked us for booklets to show their friends.
—Katie Pryor, 1/26/12

Harold Washington College was buzzing today. Krystina met one student who had just written a paper about animal rights. One professor said, “I agree, I’m a vegan,” pointing at the leaflet. She asked me, “Don’t you feel better?!” and of course I replied, “Yes, I do!!” She gave me a big smile.
—Danyelle Hamilton, 1/27/12

A number of students at Illinois State were interested in taking the first step to help animals; reached over 900 others, too. A faculty member stopped to let me know that a new Animals and Society course had begun, with two full sections.
—Joe Espinosa, 1/24/12

Quickly handed out all 300 booklets at the University of Cincinnati. One student was particularly thrilled, as he needed a start on his factory farming paper.
—Helen Gaynor, 1/27/12

UMD student
Deeply engrossed in learning the truth at the University of Maryland.

At UNC today, the 1,200+ students I reached were much more receptive than any time in 2011. I heard from many vegetarians and at least five vegans. I could have given out more Guides but ran out after 12. Great conversations as well, including one faculty member. I also got booklets into the hands of an assistant director of dining services and an assistant director of career services.
—Brandon Becker, 1/26/12

Despite the wind, a solid day at Florida Atlantic University – over 1,500 reached. Quite a few students seemed especially happy to get the information. Also, a professor thanked me for being there and said she would share the information with her students.
     Over 1,000 today at two Broward College campuses and Florida Atlantic U. One girl who got a leaflet ran back over to me. She said she’s a former vegetarian and excitedly said, “I want to go veggie again!” She happily accepted a Guide. The very last student I leafleted was delighted to get the information. We talked for a while and she said she’s excited to change her diet!
