We’re excited to introduce Taylor Radig as our Campaigns Manager!
Taylor will work with restaurants and leading food providers to help them match their menus with the booming industry of vegan eating.
Working and volunteering in the animal protection movement since 2009, Taylor not only brings her campaign experience, but also over eight years working in the food industry. She hopes to use both experiences to help make vegan eating even more accessible, while creating a kinder and more sustainable world for everyone.
As a former undercover investigator for Compassion Over Killing, Taylor has seen firsthand the violence inherent in animal agribusiness. Her undercover work earned her recognition as Whistleblower Insider ’s 2013 Whistleblower of the Year.
Originally from California, Taylor now lives in Denver, Colorado, where she volunteers for various grassroots organizations working on addressing racism and supporting the LGBTQ community. She holds two degrees in philosophy with a minor in theological studies. Outside of advocacy, Taylor loves traveling, indoor cycling, and has a newfound love of archery.
And everyone please stay tuned for easy ways you can help get more vegan options in mainstream eateries. Thank you!

I received the Guide to Cruelty-Free Eating a few weeks ago. I’ve been vegan for 10 months now, and I love it. I leave the Guide around the house so my family can get inspired and consider going vegan, or at least make more vegan choices, and it’s been great. Thank you for the work you do!

This amazing crew [Kirstine Dalgaard, Brian Lutz, Becki Markle, John Oberg, John Deetjen, Rachel Shippee, Kevin Cooney, Sandi Swiss, Mary Deetjen, Clarké Snell, Mickey Kudia, Audrey Shircliff, Erik Davidson, and Katie Snow] just handed out *14,625* booklets, the most EVER in Chicago, most on this entire tour, AND second most in ALL of Warped Tour history (423 shows that have been leafleted over the course of the last 12 years)!!!!
And the cherry on the top was meeting Savannah [below, left], who got a booklet from us last year and went vegetarian as a result!
Met Emily [at the Milwaukee stop, below, center], who got this booklet four years ago and it made her go vegan! She even remembered that the booklets were red that year.
Also met Danni [in Kansas City, below, right], who got a booklet here last year and went vegetarian as a result!
