In Memory of Lisa Shapiro

  Lisa Shapiro

It is with great sadness that we face the passing of Lisa Shapiro, an extraordinary friend and activist.

Lisa fought for animals with an integrity and selflessness that cannot be surpassed. Right up to her final lucid days, Lisa was doing all she could to help animals.

We will miss Lisa – but our lives have been enriched by our time with her and she will always be in our hearts and minds.

—Jack Norris, RD, President

Samira with Nicolas Tomas and Vic Sjodin

It was great to leaflet with Jane Jancys and Nicolas Tomas [below, center] – together we handed out 1,600 booklets at Cal Poly Pomona.

Highlights were speaking with Samira [above, left], who wants to go vegan after getting a booklet. And meeting Lilly [below, left], who went vegan from a booklet. We also met Elliot who had gone vegan from a booklet in the past. Bingo!
