  • On Being Vegan
    during planting and harvesting Vegan Outreach s View A Results Based Approach We believe that framing veganism as the avoidance of a specific list of bad ingredients is not the best way to achieve results When looked at closely any ingredients based definition of vegan collapses into inconsistencies This is why we stress that the essence of being vegan is working to end cruelty to animals Working to end cruelty to animals is a clear motivation that can be easily comprehended by others When discussing veganism we admit there are not always clear cut answers and explain that it s not a matter of making the right or wrong choice in every situation This practical goal oriented approach shows that being vegan is an active progressive means by which we make the world a better place Although all views of vegan include not supporting factory farms and slaughterhouses there are many instances where a results based approach can help animals more than the ingredients based approach For example a consistent vegan dedicated to an ingredients based view of veganism wouldn t use film which contains gelatin under any circumstances Yet how many animals have been saved from great suffering because of the visual impact of the pictures and films that have documented so many abuses Not Just What We Avoid Some would argue that vegans should replace their current cameras with digital ones However we have to ask if spending money replacing a functional object with a new one is the best way to oppose cruelty to animals This is also an issue with leather and wool goods we had purchased before becoming vegan Might the extra money be better spent creating resources to spread vegetarianism such as printing literature We believe that being vegan isn t simply avoiding a list of products We seek to maximize the good we accomplish with our decisions As vegans what we do is as important as what we don t do Some vegans and non vegans alike are quick to call others hypocrites if they don t avoid a certain hidden ingredient But if your goal is to alleviate suffering it isn t hypocritical to believe that avoiding all hidden ingredients can be prohibitively expensive time consuming and make veganism appear impossible to others It is also worth noting that animal byproducts will disappear as the meat dairy and egg industries fade Spending our time and energy focused on minor ingredients rather than on spreading vegetarianism may not be the best use of time Dealing with Others Choosing to stop eating animals not only says that past actions were wrong it also implicitly communicates to family friends and colleagues that their continued eating of animals is wrong When vegans share their new ideas some family and friends not only show resistance but can even react with mockery or anger Combine this with the fact that vegans naturally view meat eaters as supporting cruelty and causing suffering and it is not surprising that some

    file or notebook and then look through them when you need a boost It is surprising how much a really funny cartoon can change your mood Visit the Bizarro website to check out some great animal rights cartoons Spend time with a like minded friend If you don t have one make one Join an animal rights or vegetarian group or go to an online a r or veg chat room You don t have to stop hanging out with your meat eating friends but sometimes it really helps to talk to someone who understands exactly what you are going through Once a guy I didn t really know that well called me out of the blue and vented for 15 minutes about people s insensitivity towards animals then said good bye He just needed to get it off his chest and none of his other friends would have understood By the way we are good friends now You don t have to try to be 100 vegan It is simply not possible I try to focus on what makes a difference to the animals Obviously not eating meat eggs and dairy products makes a BIG difference to the animals Their lives literally depend on it Please read Why Vegan if the egg and dairy connection doesn t make sense to you But how much is the meat dairy industry really profiting from the Myristal Ether Sulfate in your shampoo Particularly since Myristal Ether Sulfate can be derived from either plant or animal origin I am NOT saying don t read ingredients or that you should buy things that clearly have animal derived ingredients but don t let yourself be consumed by minutiae Keep in mind that you are setting an example for non vegans The harder it looks to

  • Leafleting
    before they take it Simply saying Can I offer you a brochure about being vegetarian seems to work well When talking with people about being vegan make sure not to complicate the issue if you can avoid it Most everyone already opposes animal abuse so it follows that we should focus on how factory farms and slaughterhouses abuse animals rather than construct an abstract argument about violations of animals rights While you engage people in conversation about the intense suffering of the animals we eat be certain to tell each one how we can take a stand against that cruelty by becoming vegan effectively helping to make the world a better place for all of us Simple and Effective Leafleting Tips Always look professional and clean cut Even if this means dressing in a way you wouldn t ordinarily dream of it s important not to give passersby a reason to quickly dismiss you and the vegan message Advocating veganism sometimes requires sacrifice from each of us and changing our appearance for public outreach is a minor but important one to make Keep in mind that we re trying to legitimize veganism and need to appeal to the average person So activists have found that the general public is much more receptive if we look as mainstream as our message of compassion should be While leafleting try to be outgoing and friendly Many people may just walk past unless you approach them in a positive and pleasant manner A simple smile can have a dramatic effect on how people perceive you and serve as an encouraging invitation to take a brochure If someone is wearing a team shirt commenting positively about their team is a quick ice breaker that makes it hard for them to refuse your leaflet and leaves them with the impression for example That animal rights person is an Orioles fan too If you have a conversation with someone make sure to stay focused It s fine to have a quick conversation about the weather the football season or some neutral topic to bond with the person with whom you re speaking But avoid a spirited discussion of abortion the death penalty or any topic other than animal abuse Never lose sight of why you re there to expose the misery endured by farmed animals and to promote veganism as a solution Don t engage with hostile people Be careful to pick your battles A good conversation with a person clearly interested in the issues is worth having A lengthy discussion with a person only interested in hurling hypotheticals at you is not worth having If someone yells at you speaks with you in a belittling manner or tries to provoke you into a heated debate it is best to either ignore the person if possible or just to say Thanks very much for your comments I have to get back to my leafleting now We know it s tough to just turn away and ignore someone
