campus leafleting 2/4, 2/5, 2/7

posted by Jennifer G.

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.

    Hello and thank you to all of you who helped out this week!
    You were all an important part of changing hearts and minds about the horrors of factory farming. You are such a wonderful group!
    I was hoping to see you, and meet more of you, this evening at Vege Favor, but I decided to head home to Connecticut, before the blizzard! Perhaps again in March? See you then!

    Thanks to everyone who pitched in—you all rock!! I believe we handed out 493 at Farmingdale, 1346 at Suffolk, and nearly 2800 at Stony Brook—a grand total of over 4500. A recent study found that for every 60 leaflets handed to college students, one person went vegetarian as a direct result. So it's quite possible there are 4500/60 = SEVENTY-FIVE NEW VEGETARIANS OR VEGANS out there, thanks to our outreach this week. Bravo, everyone! We are making a difference. :)

      Awesome!! I figured most just ended up in the trash but it's good to know we did make a difference.

    Two very important notes!!!
    1. If we run in to any security or staff on campus with complaints or questions about our being there, please allow me to be the speaker/representative for the group.
    2. Please do NOT text me. I do not have texting, so it starts to add up! Phone calls only, please.
    Thank you.

      Actually, Karen has already replied (below)—her instructions are: "Park in Lot 7, then meet us in front of Gleeson Hall. You can start out with Jennifer or myself. We will then spread out a bit, once/ if you are comfortable!"

      If you go the website for the college, and plug in "campus map" in the search box, you will see a full lay out of the campus!
