Vegan Outreach Leafleting and Vegan Brunch

I have both Compassionate Choices and Why Vegan leaflets in my house. We can spent between 60-90 minutes leafleting on the street and then have a great brunch at Blossoming Lotus (all vegan restaurant). For the leafleting we would need people that are 100% ethical vegans in order to appropriately advocate and answer questions (people who eat vegan, wear only vegan, don't use products tested on animals, etc.) and of course only wear vegan clothing for the leafleting please :) This would be the first time I have leafleted in this location and I would anticipate traffic to be light and the best advocacy to come from quality of interactions v. quantity. We would locate ourselves on street corners near the area (meeting at the corner of 15 and Broadway please).

If you choose to drink at Blossoming Lotus please don't drive after. Thank you

    Total of 3 vegans came. We handed out a total of 105 leaflets to interested people. Then we had a nice vegan meal at Blossoming Lotus.

    Zero negative encounters with public.
    Zero negative encounters with shop owners
    Zero encounters with police.

    Multiple conversations with interested people who received our leaflets.

    Thanks Amanda and Shine for your dedication!

    Er my shoes are either partially made of leather or no way to tell. I am still trying to wear them out, but that shouldnt mean i cant properly advocate..

      Generally speaking, however, I have seen the difficulty in people handing out Vegan Outreach leaflets properly advocating for the animals if not fully vegan and/or wearing clothing that is obviously not vegan.

      I've never leafleted but would love to try. Who's the host? Back to the subject, i can see that being more of an issue to explain away for people who bought animal products with awareness. As a matter of fact, most people weren't raised vegan and they might have already had non-vegan stuff by the time they turn vegan, or they might have bought the products without awareness (which is my case). We are all learning as we go.
