Ever wanted to table a show with peta2? Well, Street Teamer Kristen Spittle totally did, and we made it happen! The 16-year-old vegan high-school student recently spoke up for animals alongside the peta2 tour crew at a Never Shout Never show in her town and had a blast!

Want to hear more about her experience? Check out our interview below (and a super-cute pic of us at last year’s “Hug a Vegetarian” Day event in Los Angeles)!

  • What are your favorite ways to speak up for animals? 

One way I help animals is by volunteering at my local animal shelter. My family recently adopted a pregnant cat and joined a rescue center for cats!

Along with volunteering, I understand that my food choices impact the amount of animals killed every year. Before I was born, my parents became pescatarian, and they decided to raise me the same. I became vegan about a year and a half ago when I was researching vegetarianism on the Internet. I learned that to be cruelty-free, I needed to make the transition from pescatarian to vegan. In addition to this, I wanted to do a project for school about vegetarianism because I was interested in learning more, and I went to peta2′s website. I just can’t believe how much I have learned from becoming vegan, and I just really want to get the word out there about what a great lifestyle choice veganism is.

Lastly, I always have peta2 leaflets in my purse, just in case I have to do some emergency activism! My fedora that I wear almost everywhere has a “no fur” peta2 button and other peta2 buttons—my fedora is so stylish now!

  • This was your first time tabling with peta2, right? Tell us how it went!

I had such a fun time at the concert and talking to everyone! Our goal was to get people to try veganism by texting in. I was really excited about showing people veganism for the first time and how much food choices directly impact the lives of animals. It was really cool when people who may have never considered veganism said they were seriously going to try it! I enjoyed dancing around with the peta2 sign as people walked by. Anything to get attention to that peta2 table!

  • What would you say to someone who wants to get active for animals but doesn’t know where to start and is nervous about talking to the public?

First, you start with your food choices, and if you are a teenager, like me, you really want to do your research, because your parents may not like the idea of veganism at first. If you know the impact vegan food has on your health, the environment and animals, you will be ready to answer any question. You can also learn a lot by watching documentaries about veganism.

  • Is there anything else that you’d like to tell us about yourself?

I love to cook! I found cooking when I became vegan, and now I cook almost every meal I eat and love finding new cookbooks and recipes. peta2 helped me learn about really good vegan desserts, too!

Thanks, Kristen!

    I'm a therian /otherkin wolf lycanthrope that sees this lifetime in this body as a punishment that the god and goddess has bestowed upon me, but I try my best to do good to all living beings except usually humans which I hate and detest with all my being.
