New Hire: Anne Green
Thanks to our generous donors and dedicated volunteers and employees, Vegan Outreach has grown by leaps and bounds in the past five years. Yet with our growth, the group has still been run primarily by just Jack Norris and Matt Ball, with our employees putting their time towards leafleting and other forms of outreach. Vegan Outreach has reached the point where we can no longer keep up with everything, much less expand our programs.
For this reason, we are pleased to announce that Anne Green, Ph.D., is now working for Vegan Outreach.
Anne has a long history in animal advocacy. She was Outreach Coordinator for Students for Animal Rights at the University of Illinois in 1992, former President of the Board of Directors for Green Acres Sanctuary, and former Advisor to the Carnegie Mellon Vegetarians. Her main efforts for the past decade have been as Vice President of Vegan Outreach.
While working full-time as a German Professor at Carnegie Mellon University, Anne made day-to-day contributions to Vegan Outreach in the areas of strategic planning, reviewing and editing, and as the de facto office manager (Vegan Outreach is run from a spare room in her house).
Her employment at Carnegie Mellon allowed her to support Jack and Matt while we launched and established Vegan Outreach in the 90s. As a full-time Professor, Anne was able to provide financial security, shelter, and free labor and support for Jack and Matt’s efforts.
Now, thanks in part to Anne's contributions, Vegan Outreach is a successful and growing organization, able to employ Jack and Matt as well as several full-time leafleters. Having reached this point, Anne will now dedicate her time fully to the animals’ cause. We know that Anne will make exceptional contributions to Vegan Outreach and our efforts for the animals.
