I'm Vegan Outreach's Mexico Outreach Manager. I help animals by organizing activities at over 100 universities and schools across Mexico each year. We bring information to the Mexican youth so they know how to reduce the suffering of animals through their dietary choices. We do this by handing out leaflets, setting up tables with iAnimal virtual reality headsets by Animal Equality, giving presentations in classrooms, and more.

I have done activism for more than 10 years now, and I believe education and information are the most powerful tools to create social and cultural change.

In the past four years of visiting schools every semester for Vegan Outreach, I have noticed how society is changing. Nowadays, more students recognize the word "vegan" and are starting to acknowledge that it's a more compassionate and sustainable way of living.

This past semester, a college student told me that it's completely possible to obtain all the nutrients we need from a plant-based diet. He said that before I even touched the subject, and it was the first time this has happened. I was so happy to hear it! This is just one example of how society is transforming—and it wouldn't happen without work like Vegan Outreach's.

We can reach a point where people are not afraid of eating vegan and most of the population practice it, sparing the lives of hundreds of thousands of pigs, chickens, cows, and sea animals. In order to keep moving the needle, we need to keep educating people.

Thank you for donating to Vegan Outreach so we can keep moving society towards a future where vegan is the norm and exploiting animals is a thing of the past.
