Bilingual Presentation + Delicious Food at LA Church
As part of VO’s Community Engagement Initiative (CEI), Mexico Campaigns & Spanish Media Coordinator Katia Rodriguez traveled all the way up to Los Angeles to assist Events & CEI Manager Roxanne Hill in hosting a bilingual presentation on the benefits of plant-based eating. And with the help of vegan chef Derek Rogers, The Nomad Vegan, the event at All Saints Episcopal Church was as delicious as it was informative! Check out all the details here.

The Chocolate Mousse That Changed the World
Wonderful VO donor, mentor, and leafleter Becky Rose shares a vegan mousse recipe that’s straightforward and utterly fantastic!
I LOVE my mentor. We met in person at Yard House and had vegan burgers. She is so sweet and helpful. We have a lot in common and I know that I can always rely on her for help. She was really knowledgeable and opened my eyes to new things/ideas about veganism. Thank you so much for pairing me up with her!
This was a GREAT experience and I would love to get more involved one day and would recommend this program to anyone!

From VO’s Southeast Outreach Coordinator, Yuri Mitzkewich:
Super productive visit to the friendly crowds at the University of South Alabama! It was fun to have local ARC (Awakening Respect and Compassion for All Sentient Beings) volunteer Roy Duvall [above, left] join in—his third semester in a row turning out here. He’s amazing when he’s on campus—reaching out to the students with his serenely peaceful and calm personality, he got lots of those we reached stopping to talk with him.
Jackie [below] was one of several he found who was super excited to get the info. She’d been wanting to go vegetarian for a while but was having trouble getting family to accept her choice. Roy gave her lots of reassuring ideas to think about, and she was very excited and super happy that she’d met him. Getting a Guide to Cruelty-Free Eating, and an extra Your Choice for her family, she left us pumped and ready to give it a go.
It was also super cool having Steve Rubey (volunteer David Rubey’s father) [above, right] join us for a little while. Was really awesome seeing him and Roy working the flows of students together. Steve, a recent convert, said he really enjoyed the leafleting and he’d be joining again next time we’re in town. Awesome day with lots of amazing interactions here! Always love visiting this school!
