3 Pigs and a Lamb Doing Outreach
The pigs and I spent last week out on college campuses with a lot of amazing activists spreading the message of compassion for animals. And it truly feels like there are dozens of new vegans out there and hundreds of people, at the very least, rethinking how they view animals.
On Monday we stopped at The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and had a great day of outreach. Charlotte, Pumpkin, and Karuna the Lamb (rescued by Anthony Collini from being used for 'leg of lamb' and 'lamb chops') drew people in and made them open to the message of rethinking -who- we eat.
The next day, we visited North Carolina A&T State University to meet middle and high school students attending an energy fair. I think Charlotte and Karuna made a huge impact on these students and they left with a lot of literature to read on the way back to their schools about how animals are treated. They seemed to be deeply impacted by meeting Charlotte and Karuna and many were announcing a desire to change their eating habits as we were talking to them.
On Thursday, we visited UNC Charlotte and had an amazing day and tons of help from local activists and students. We reached hundreds of people and again, Karuna, Charlotte and Pumpkin were working their magic.
We finished our trip at UNC Greensboro where Millie joined Charlotte and Karuna for one last day of activism.
Overall, the trip felt hugely successful. I witnessed Charlotte, Pumpkin, Millie, and Karuna veganize people almost magically. I heard so many people say things like 'This has really shaken my world view' or 'this changes everything'. And I watched VeganEvan work his magic on people too. Hopefully a world where all animals are treated with love and kindness is a little bit closer to reality!
