Leaflet CU for an hour and plant a lot of vegan seeds

Who wants to leaflet CU during your lunch break? An hour of your time will get out a lot of pamphlets and is a superb use of time. Long time activist/vegan Barbara Bear was a regular leafleter of CU and I've felt guilty that it has been neglected since she moved away several years ago. So, I am making a commitment to do it for an hour every month or so.

Even one other person  leafleting makes a big difference in "take rate" (those that accept a Compassionate Choices brochure).  Students are low hanging fruit pre-vegans.... l)

I will order the pamphlets and have everything you need to do a successful leaflet outreach event. You just need to show up.

Who is in?! ;-)

    Nice meeting new people and spending a little time outdoors at CU. I'm game to go to one of the other colleges nearby: Front Range, CSU, UNC, DU, CU-Denver -- wherever. I can drive if we carpool.

    It was great to get together with other vegans wanting to help the animals. I actually got to talk to two people that I gave leaflets to!

    Hi Lisa,

    When I got to thinking about being on the CU campus, the annual CWA crossed my mind. I have not noticed a vegan discussion group in the past (9 years that we have lived here). Do you know if there has ever been one? Does it sound like something worth pursuing?

      They did have a panel last year and it was a really poor selection of panelists. I know Lisa will concur. The panelists were just plucked from the speakers that were already there at the conference and none of them were even vegan. Well, two were close and one was rather anti-vegan. So I think we should definitely encourage them to include the topic, but to please give the consideration to speaker selection that such an important subject deserves. I look forward to seeing/meeting you all next week!

    I've been on UC campus the past two days registering people to vote and it seems that the campus is okay for leaflet today in my opinion. Is this still happening today?
