Street Teamer Zach Brooks from Albany, New York, is the latest recipient of peta2’s Star Street Teamer Award!

You may remember Zach as the awesome activist who was recognized on our blog for organizing his own McCruelty protests back in July. Since that last blog post, he’s organized numerous protests (including one at a horseracing track), tabled with peta2 at a Bring Me The Horizon show, and tabled and leafleted at local festivals in his area! In addition to all this, Zach was recently selected to participate in peta2’s Youth Advisory Board, so he’ll soon be spending his time helping peta2 by giving feedback on our latest campaigns and missions and participating in regular meetings with peta2 staffers.

In addition to the “Star Street Teamer” title, Zach will receive a framed certificate of appreciation from peta2 for his hard work! Check out his Q&A below:

What would you say to someone who wanted to organize a protest but didn’t know how to get started?

A protest is easy to plan, just contact peta2 ([email protected]) and they help you so much! They send everything you need to know, all the materials, and they help you pull it all off!

How do you get so many people to attend your protests?

We get a lot of people to attend our protest by really getting the word out. I ask my friends and make events on Facebook, so even people I’ve never met who live in my area show up!

What’s your fave vegan meal?

My favorite vegan meal would be vegan mac and cheese. I’ve loved it since I was little, and using a few key ingredients (all vegan, of course), it still tastes amazing!

If you wrote a book about your work as an activist, what would the title be?

If I had a book written about me, I would like it to be called Getting Sh*t Done for Animals! Which is pretty self-explanatory.

What are you doing to celebrate “Hug a Vegetarian” Day?

To celebrate “Hug a Vegetarian” Day, I’m making a “Hug Me—I’m a Vegan” shirt and hugging the crap out of anyone who will hug me! Then I’m going to stick an “I hugged a vegetarian” sticker on them.


Who is going to be the next Star Street Teamer? It could be YOU! Get active, and tell us all about it—you could be the next Star Street Teamer!
