Meat-Eaters and Vegetarians Duke It Out Nationwide

Like the basketball teams from this year’s March Madness, we too have been traveling from campus to campus across the country—except that instead of shooting hoops, we’re challenging meat-eaters to debate us on the ethics of eating animals.

To highlight just a few of these recent events, here’s a quick recap:

At Yale University, a crowd of 200 Ivy-Leaguers filled a historic campus lecture hall to watch PETA vice president Bruce Friedrich face off against members of the number-one-ranked Yale Debate Association. The story was covered by both the student newspaper and local New Haven Register, garnering lots of buzz about vegetarianism!

Next up, we took the show out to the “Left Coast,” to visit the scenic and … err … fragrant campus UC Santa Cruz. Students once again packed the room, leaving only after overwhelmingly determining that veganism is the only ethical choice for people concerned about human health, the environment, or animals.

For a change of pace, we then made a stop at Brigham Young University—the largest school in Utah, which is located in what has been identified as the most conservative city in America. Not surprisingly, students there concluded that animal rights is not a “right or left” issue, and that people of faith have just as much of a responsibility to go vegan as anybody else.

So where are we headed next? Well, I don’t want to give away the surprise, so let’s say that it’s a state that starts with “Tex.”

Oh dear, I fear I’ve said too much already …

    Oh this is great news!!! Way to go PETA!!! We need to get the word out on Vegetarianism/ veganism. Especially in the schools, because they do not have any good vegetarian/vegan options! I mean pepperoni pizza everyday for lunch. YUCK! Not only is it gross, because of the meat. It is also very fattening and gross! : P Way to go all you public schools. Your really trying to fatten us up aren’t you?? So again way to go PETA! Love you PETA supporters. 😉
