One of the many reasons I like Vegan Outreach so much is because of the way your organization incorporates and responds to feedback, learns from experience, and continually fine-tunes its approach to teaching the convertible about how they can eat and act with compassion.
     Additionally, I like the tactile and personal approach of leafleting, and, of course, I love seeing how a small group of exceptionally dedicated people with a singular purpose can create change – especially when it is outside of the media limelight.
     To see subtle, but powerful, changes taking place with little attention from the media is truly fascinating and inspiring to me.

Today was one of my absolute favorite days of outreach on my tour this semester. I literally met over 60 different people at Portland State who told me they were vegetarian / vegan. Over 1,600 minds that are likely already progressive were given the opportunity to open up their hearts to the suffering of farmed animals.
     A few interactions stand out: One student told me, “It freaked me out. Really woke me up.” I had a nice, quick convo with him, encouraging him that he can make a difference. Another told me, “Those are some scary pictures, man. That’s really messed up.” One more told me, “I fully endorse your efforts,” and many said things like, “That stuff’s terrible,” or “Thank you for being out here.”
     I handed Abdul a booklet, then continued leafleting. About 30 minutes later, he started walking towards me, fairly slowly, and uttered the words, “I cannot believe this is happening,” in a serious tone, almost as if he were in shock. He said how it’s so unfair how we treat these animals and seemed so sincere that I thought he might be teary-eyed. I had run out of Guides so was bummed I couldn’t give him one. Fortunately I had to run back to my car, so I grabbed some more, hoping to see him again. Almost at the moment I was wrapping up, I saw Abdul walk out of the building and start walking the other direction. I got his attention and handed him a Guide. I snapped a pic of him with it [above] and he told me that the Guide will be “very useful” and was so thankful to get it. Glad to have been able to make this impact!

Susan, John, and I had an amazing, record-breaking day at Camosun College and the University of Victoria, where we reached nearly 3,000 new people! Typical feedback: “This is so awesome that you’re doing this. This is the way the future needs to go!”

Best day I’ve ever had at Baruch College! A bunch of vegetarians and vegans, and a guy stopped to help leaflet for an hour and a half!

People were very open to the information at Tunxis Community College. Over the course of the day, a dozen people came back to talk with me, and I made clear all the different ways they can help reduce suffering.

I found a local high school I could hit quickly on my break – at one point, the kids lined up to get a booklet! I probably could have handed out almost twice as many had I not run out! Even handing out 100 booklets – which can be done in 15 minutes – feels like a million dollars and makes a difference.

Diana, Jovan, and I found very receptive students at Harold Washington College. One student took a booklet from us and said she does not eat animals because we don’t need to take a life. She got a Guide. Another lady looked at the cover of the booklet and said, “What, they are still doing that to animals?!” I said, “Yeah, big time.” She said, “Oh forget this, I am not doing it anymore!” She took a Guide then gave me a high five.

New record at Sierra College, where I reached over 1,100 students. Great feedback and conversations, and was thanked numerous times for being out there fighting the good fight and spreading the word.
     This school has come a LONG way since my first trip here in 2007. So many more vegetarians / vegans and open-minded people.
