Vegan Outreach works to end violence towards animals. Vegan Outreach seeks a future when sentient animals are no longer exploited as commodities. Vegan Outreach focuses on exposing the suffering of farmed animals through the widespread distribution of our booklets promoting plant-based eating. We distribute our booklets primarily through our Adopt a College program, in which our outreach coordinators and volunteers hand our booklets to about 1 million students at up to 1,000 schools every semester. We also distribute our booklets at concerts, festivals, and other places where we're likely to find potentially receptive individuals.
