Your pamphlet helped turn me vegan
11 years ago. I have absolutely loved Vegan
Outreach’s work since then. I’m in a position
right now to give [to
the matching], so I want to help
you guys help the animals.
Together for Better Thanksgivings
Every month or so, a new investigation comes out, exposing a specific new case of cruelty.
But we all know that for every atrocity exposed, there are almost countless others that go unseen.
We are obviously outraged when we see the latest example of the barbarism animals suffer on factory farms and in slaughterhouses.
But outrage isn’t enough!
The animals need our action – effective and efficient advocacy to create real change.
This is why we give the animals our voices every single day.
Do you want to reach more people in the next year?
Do you want fewer turkeys slaughtered?

Dakota State was ag school #3
this week, and it went as expected: amazingly!
morning at my alma mater, Case
Western Reserve University, I leafleted my undergraduate
advisor, and he seemed interested in the issue,
though he did not recognize me. A staff person
walked by with a high school group following
her. She told me not to give them leaflets,
but I did offer them and most of the students
wanted them. She was mad, but I just told her
they had the right to the information if they
wanted it. A couple ladies also pulled their
cars over to see what I was handing out and
took leaflets. I love curious people!
I had many good conversations at
Western Connecticut State. We met a student
who received a booklet from me last year and
cut his consumption of animal products in half.
Another said he received one last semester and
cut out all meat. A third also said he received
one from me and is working toward vegan! A woman
from administration stopped to talk – she is
marrying a vegan in the spring. I gave her a
Guide to get her started, and she was very grateful.
Gathered 13 names and emails of students who
want better veg options in the cafeteria and
want to start a group on campus.
I’m still in shock from all the great conversations
I had at Southeastern University,
and how excited several people were to accept
a booklet when they heard what it was about.
In fact, the words “factory farming”
didn’t really get students as excited as “vegetarian”
or “vegan” did, as the “v”
words caused several students to stop in their
tracks to get a booklet. Talked to a nice woman
who was tabling on behalf of her church, and
while not vegan, she eats a lot of veg foods
since her son got a Compassionate Choices
at Polk State two years ago and was really affected
by it. Also, talked to an English professor
who is supportive and has been integrating animal
issues into his assignments. After our conversation,
he is now thinking about showing some animal
films and may invite us to talk to his classes.
results for the animals every day!
