Jev’s Delicious Tacos
VO’s Canada Outreach Coordinator, Jev Martel, shares the recipe for one of her favorite vegan meals—tacos!
I had a lot of support from great Vegan Outreach volunteers and our local intern in the Columbus area (Stephanie) this week. Ohio State was especially fun because I gave high fives to a bunch of runners and leafleted five skateboarders. At Columbus State Community College, one student asked me if chick culling is an actual practice in the egg industry and told us the leaflet was giving him a lot to think about before his upcoming lunch; it’s really surprising for many people when they learn about it. Below is a picture of VO intern Stephanie Sopczak at CSCC.

Disclaimer: In last week’s e-news, we highlighted chalking sidewalks as a way to promote a pro-animal message. It was later brought to our attention that in many areas, chalking the sidewalk is illegal and people have been arrested for it. Please make sure it’s legal before you chalk!
