Recent Steve Pics

Steve Erlsten reports:

Agnes at Cal Poly Pomona took a leaflet on her way to class. A couple hours later she stopped back by to tell me the abuse is depressing. I reminded her that we have the power to change what's happening, and we discussed vegan meats and other options. She took a Guide to Cruelty-Free Eating and seemed excited to try some new vegan dishes!

Eduardo at El Camino College took a leaflet and mentioned that some of his friends in the campus chapter of Young Americans for Liberty are vegan. He has been thinking about it more lately and appreciated his Guide to Cruelty-Free Eating. Late in the morning the Young Americans for Liberty set a table up near me. I sparked some conversation, so I got to hear the vegan members telling the other YAL members about the incredible food at Veggie Grill and Native Foods. It was another great reminder that animal abuse knows no political limits, so everyone can participate in this revolution!

Claudia's aunt recently underwent open heart surgery, and her mother has been urging her to get healthy. She wanted to cut back on unhealthy food; she just didn't know how! We had a long conversation about hearty foods and vegan meats. She is ready to cut back drastically--maybe even going vegan--because "the way they treat the animals is terrible."

Also at Bakersfield College, Cynthia wrote a report about the food system and is ready to make a change!
