Our spring campus tour is now well underway, and students all across the West and Southwest have been showing massive support for getting more vegan foods onto their college campuses.
As usual, our tour team members caused big-time buzz when they arrived, including having a front-page student newspaper article printed about them the first day that they stepped onto the San Diego State University campus! Since then, the team has gathered thousands of petition signatures alongside students in support of additional vegan options at the University of California–Riverside, the University of California–Davis (UC Davis), California State University–Chico, and the University of Nevada–Las Vegas.
At UC Davis, one student was so excited by our visit that he volunteered to jump into our cow costume and help petition with the crew!
Hello! My name is Nina, and I am a musician-in-training, and I play 7 instruments. I am a liberal, an LGBT activist, avid reader, composer, singer, and poi spinner. I am vegan, and a strong supporter of animal rights.
I have always lived in Los Angeles but my family and I went to Mexico for my parents wedding. So we came back to LA. I don't like LA but were here already what can I do unless I move out and find my own housing. I have always liked animals and it was til I was like about 14 when I learned about tests they do on animals and I began to explore animal cruelty because I was interested it in it. I have watched videos that just broke my heart so that's why today I'm doing all I can to not buy anything that has harmed an animal and I'm vegetarian .
