Ideas For Campus Activism
From [email protected]

Here are some ideas for campus activism that we've done at Vassar.

*Tabling at the dining hall with literature (and video/pictures).
*Meetings with chair of the Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC) for info on animal use on campus.
*Editorials and stories in the college paper.
*Vegan food at various events on campus. (free cookies or brownies if people read literature and tell you a fact they learned from it)
*Constant communication with dining facility about vegan and vegetarian options.
*Offering campus space for local animal rights organizing.
*Use school organization funds to help build ties with community activists.
*Always a lot of free literature and stickers.
*Sell merchandise like shirts, pins, etc. which promote animal rights.
*Hold a vigil or publicly seen action to draw attention to animal use on campus.
*Support anything mainstream that ties in animal rights and then discuss it (like show the movie Bambi, book bands who support animal rights, etc)
*Work to get cruelty products in the campus store.
*Encourage local restaurants and businesses to put signs in their window which read "Vegan friendly" or something with a similar theme (make the signs for them don't expect them to do it)
*Participate in national days of action with petitions and tabling and protests.
