Engaging Children (humane & nutrition education, children's books, school clubs, cafeteria vegan options) - Roth, Warwak, Guerrero)
Warwak’s key strategies for long lasting achievable change:
Confront your local school board to offer children vegan school lunches.
Insist teachers incorporate Humane Education in their lessons – already required in many states.
Talk openly with children about veganism, otherwise vegans come across as being wrong, timid, and subversive. We did nothing wrong and should have no problem talking with children about reality, kindness, and compassion. The truth is not against the law.
Put pressure on our leaders to adopt vegan diets. We also need to put pressure on people to follow existing laws.
Find creative ways to get the word out. Learn from corpse-munchers how to reach children. They use happy meals, cartoons, toys, games, prizes, events, and contests.
Live by example. Speak-up against injustice. Children will hear you whether you realize they are listening or not.
I give these cards to all ages. Just hand it to corpse-munchers at checkouts or walking by anyone wherever you are. Don't say anything, just hand it to them and walk away.
Go out at night and leave cards in/on playground equipment where children play. Leave them in gumball machines where the prize/candy comes out.
You can get 1000 business cards (bring this page to your local printer) for about $25.00
