Australian Excerpt


Earlier this year, I was fortunate to address (via Skype) Australia's Animal Activists Forum. Here is an excerpt from my prepared remarks:

[A]sk yourself – why is it better to be a vegetarian than someone who, say, eats only “free-range” animals. Obviously, eating animals that weren’t factory farmed is better.

But as vegetarians, we don’t make our food decisions based on what is better. We want to make the best choices we can for the animals.

Well, that is exactly how Vegan Outreach looks at advocacy: We don’t want to make things somewhat better. We want to make the best choices we can for the animals.

Thanks so much to the hundreds and hundreds of donors who also want to do their best for the animals. You can check the status of the matching challenge at the VO homepage.
