One Million Booklets!
We at Vegan Outreach are proud to announce a special milestone! For the first time in our storied 20-year history, we’ve reached more than one million college students in a single semester with the plight of farmed animals!
This fall semester of our Adopt a College program, activists have personally handed Vegan Outreach booklets to over one million young people. We’ve reached students in 48 of the US states, as well as throughout Canada, Australia, Denmark, and Italy.
This wasn’t an easy task. It involved activists putting in thousands and thousands of miles on the road, standing day after day on their feet for hours on end in all weather conditions; and in the case of VO’s Canada Outreach Coordinator, Kristin Lamy, getting stuck in Buffalo for multiple days during a snowstorm.
We’re always hearing from individuals who have gone vegetarian or vegan as a result of our hard work – individuals who never thought much about their food choices and are now actively working to create a better world for animals, thanks to getting a Vegan Outreach booklet.
This accomplishment has been a team effort, and it came about thanks to the legendary dedication of VO’s tireless outreach coordinators and volunteers, the great animal advocacy organizations we team up with, and our thoughtful and generous donors who make this work happen in the first place.
Thank you to everyone who played a role in this historic milestone on behalf of animals!
