I'm convinced that leafleting college campuses is one of the most effective ways for me to spend my time & energy as an advocate. Why? Campuses usually have high foot traffic between class periods, so you can reach hundreds of people in a relatively short amount of time.
Karen James is one of Vegan Outreach's dedicated Coordinators, and she's inviting any interested VLI members to join her Feb. 4, 5, and/or 7. No experience necessary! She will provide the VO literature.
Most folks aren't available on weekdays for campus leafleting, I realize. But if you're free, consider trying it. It's a great feeling, knowing you've just brought life-changing, life-saving information to hundreds of people.
And college students are a key population to target. Why? Because college students are at a stage of their lives when they're open to new information, and they're often making their own food shopping decisions for the first time.
Also, being young means that students have more years of life left. That means more years of eating left, which means more animals to be saved by going vegan.
We'll be visiting the following campuses:
9-3, Monday Feb. 4 Farmingdale State College
9-3, Tuesday Feb. 5 Suffolk County Community College, Ammerman Campus in Selden
9-3, Thursday Feb. 7 Stony Brook University
If you're interested in joining the effort on any of these days, please RSVP. And put in your comment which date(s) you can join us.
