Fabulous day of outreach with Yuri Mitzkewich, leafleting the Florida Atlantic University campuses in Boca Raton and Davie. At the main campus, we were happy to have smashed the old record by over 700. We heard from folks who had gone vegetarian from getting a Compassionate Choices or Even If You Like Meat in the past, and had conversations that we both confidently feel will end up in new veg*ns. So happy that Yuri could get the day off, because he is such an amazing leafleter!

Today was arguably my best day of leafleting with Vegan Outreach so far (I feel like I’ve said that a few times now, guess it just keeps getting better out here – can’t complain)! I had help from a group of students from Wittenberg University’s WALI veg club who were first-time leafleters – always exciting! Our outreach today was their first organized event and it turned out to be a big success!

DGlove at Wittenberg

     We reached almost 400 students – great for a school this small – and our new Your Choice leaflet was really well received! We distributed a good number of Guide to Cruelty-Free Eating booklets and had a number of quality conversations with students interested in making some compassionate changes with their eating.
     The highlight of my day was meeting DGlove [left]; we chatted for several minutes about veg nutrition, what to eat, and how to go about making realistic behavioral change. DGlove was super cool and great to talk to, and I can say with confidence that he’ll be making some big changes after our conversation – so awesome!
     All in all, a great day of outreach – I’m sure there’ll be several new vegetarians the next time Vegan Outreach visits this campus!
