A message from Laila
It may seem scary and intimidating standing before the public raising awareness about the truth and reality of animal industries, but if you’re passionate about your values and where you stand as a proud member of our vegan community this may be just the right thing for you!
We all remember how nervous we were our first time participating in these experiences, but we gained confidence from the positive effects we are having on members of the public and by supporting each other when we’re out there on the streets together.
Many people have shown an interest in attending outreach and activism such as protests, 1000 eyes experiences and the cupcake challenges and we understand some people may hesitate to attend due to being anxious or uncertain about how it will go and if it ends up having much of an impact or not, but as you can see from the photos and feedback we post we reach a lot of people and many people decide to make changes or even go vegan on the spot after taking the time to listen.
This kind of activism isn’t for everyone, and that’s fine! We all have our own ways of planting seeds. But if you’re leaning towards giving it a go, be brave and join us. It feels truly amazing and rewarding to have discussions with people about the reality of animal agriculture and educate people on veganism.
Everyone is welcome to stop by any of the events for a chat and to see how things run.
Please get in touch with us through Vegan ACT or contact Laila directly via messenger if you have any questions or concerns
