Abolitionist Vegan, Paging Other Abolitionists

I was listening to Elizabeth Collin's new podcast and it's reminded me that I want to do more vegan education this season:

I setup a stall once last season in front of the Carnegie Library main branch and it went pretty well

The idea is to setup a table or something and allow people to come over and talk to you about veganism. I had some posters setup and one of them said "Free doughnut with conversation!"

For those who don't know, abolitionism is the idea that animal use is inherently morally problematic and as long as we treat nonhuman animals as property, their treatment can only be as good as is economically advantageous. Abolitionism eschews single-issue campaigns, welfare campaigns, the use of violence including property destruction, promoting vegetarianism, and instead focuses solely on vegan education. For more info, check out:

Any other Abolitionists interested in joining me? As far as I know, I've only come across one other Abolitionist in the city and she disappeared into thin air, but I figure since this site has been more active lately, some other vegans might have joined up that I haven't personally come across yet

Two articles of my own, not particularly related to Abolition, but decent evidence for why I and others don't believe in so called welfare improvement:

You might try suggesting a tabling meetup to see who else is interested. We have almost 1000 people here, there has to be at least a few like minded souls.

That's a fair idea Mike. Once the weather looks a little more promising I shall do that
