[B]eing vegan is not only the most efficient way to be full-body strong, it’s also the most humane; everyone wins.
—David Carter [right], NFL defensive lineman

At age 39, having been omnivorous my entire life, I was handed a leaflet in September of 2013 on campus at [American River College] and became a vegan that day as a result. Then I started leafleting for Vegan Outreach this past March.

It really is basic: The more people who receive a booklet, the more lives are saved.


Only Days Left for Matching!

Following the success of Team Vegan 2013, Vegan Outreach leafleters reached a record 996,290 students at 897 schools during fall 2013 – more students handed a booklet than ever before!

Kristin Lamy

Vegan Outreach is now poised to have another record-setting fall semester, with a full slate of awesome outreach coordinators ready to go.

Our latest addition is Kristin Lamy, who will be doing an extensive tour of Canada!

A recent survey showed that one animal is spared from a miserable life of pain and suffering on a factory farm for every two booklets handed out.

You’ll double the number of animals you spare from factory farming by donating today – before the matching challenge runs out!

Recent Feedback

I thought it was going to be a slow day leafleting Millersville University the day after Easter, but surprisingly it picked up pretty quickly! I met Jessica [right], a student who went veg after reading a booklet her brother received from us in the past! YAY! You never know who is reading!
     Today I reached 300 students at Lehigh Carbon Community College, which had never been leafleted before. There were so many great moments for such a tiny school! First off, campus police walked over so I thought I was going to get the boot. Turns out, he really liked the booklet! We talked about the transport trucks on the highway, and he compared them to the Holocaust rail cars. Incredible. A student came up to me, told me she read the booklet, cried and is now vowing to never eat meat ever again! Guided. I also heard from a vegetarian! This is definitely an ag area, and there were so many receptive students. Quality, not quantity here.

Avid at USD

The highlight at the University of South Dakota was running into Avid [left], who I met last fall. He came by to say hi, and let me know he’s been vegetarian for 3 months now. He didn’t go veg right away, because he was worried about protein; but after doing more research, he’s a confident and healthy veggie. He’s also started powerlifting.
     I also heard from several other vegetarians – much more than last semester. Great day!!

Rachel snapped this pic of Avid on 10/7/13, after he stopped to ask her what he could do to help: “We talked about how cutting back on one’s meat consumption reduces animal suffering and he said, ‘I can do that!’”

Whoa! I love the students at the gritty El Camino College Compton Center. Outstanding day of small school outreach. I saw so many people sitting outside or in the library foyer reading – it was spectacular to see.

Anna at ECC Compton Center

     I met Anna [left], who was reading a booklet and walking. She said, “This is really interesting” and we ended up having a long conversation. She volunteered that she had thought about going veg sometimes, and this is exactly the knowledge and info she needed. It was such a nice conversation.
     Walking around, I came upon a student tabling. She was busy discussing these issues with another student tabling with her. She asked for more literature, and we had a long talk on cruelty and nutrition – had to channel that inner Jack Norris. That conversation was fantastic. Lastly, near the end of the day, I approached 6 women on the lawn, which led to another long conversation and was the perfect way to end the day.
     Hard to articulate, but just a day of outreach that uplifted the soul!
