Update from the Road: East Coast’s Autumn of Outreach

The East Coast outreach tour of our 10 Billion Lives campaign is coming to a close for the semester. In this blog post, you’ll hear about the crew’s experience saving animals on the road these past couple of months. Take it away, Jessica & John!

This was the first time touring with FARM on the 10 Billion Lives Tour for both of us on the East Coast crew.  Going into this, I thought it might be discouraging, that we may speak with too many people who weren’t going to change their habits, but this tour actually really helped restore my faith in humanity.  The majority of people who viewed the video and spoke to us were deeply affected by it, and said they were at least going to start incorporating more vegan meals in an attempt to transition to fully vegan in the future.  We also spoke to many people who were so touched by the video that they were not only going to go vegan that very moment, but they wanted to become an activist themselves.  We had a wonderful start to the tour at Montgomery College in Maryland, we had 374 viewers in just two days!


Andy was just one of the wonderful people we spoke to there, who was ready to start transitioning to a vegan lifestyle.  We also had a great time at Montclair State University where we had 426 viewers in just two days and spoke to Porsha who wanted to find out everything she could about becoming vegan and getting involved herself.  At Temple University, we had an amazing volunteer, Brianna who helped us get 483 viewers in just three days!  Lydia, who was on tour with FARM this past summer volunteered with us a New York University, and took us out for some delicious pizza at Two Boots Pizza.

We also had some amazing volunteers at Rutgers University, Lizzie and Elaine.  As well as Amanda who helped us volunteer at James Madison University, and Max who helped us at North Carolina State University.  We had so many wonderful volunteers, who not only helped bring in viewers, but also helped us get good locations on campus.  We ate at so many amazing restaurants this quarter, but there are a few that really stood out.  Both of us agreed that our absolute favorite spot was Positivitea in New Jersey; they had the best black bean burger and soft serve ice-cream!

I can’t believe the tour is almost over, with only one week left!  It feels like it just started.  While living out of a van for nearly three months had its hardships, it was such an amazing experience that I wouldn’t trade for anything.  We met so many wonderful people, from volunteers to hosts that opened their home to us, to so many people who watched our video and wanted to start making changes to help animals.  It has been a wonderful and incredibly successful few months!

After a successful Summer of #SavingAnimals, we’re excited to hit the ground running with the Fall 2015 semester of outreach with our 10 Billion Lives campaign! Meet the 6 individuals who have dedicated the next few months to reaching as many people as possible with the importance of vegan choices across the country.

National Tour

Radish & Jill
Radish & Jill

Radish & Jillian are back on the road with the National Tour! Jillian Lowry was previously the driver for Warped Tour 2015 and did the Spring 2015 outreach tour. Radish has done multiple tours with 10 Billion Lives, including a couple of stints on Warped Tour. We’re very thankful to have these experience & dedicated activists on the road again for animals!



Southwest Tour


Melissa and Chase are new to the 10 Billion Lives campaign but are no strangers to helping animals!

Melissa DelSignore earned her Bachelor’s degree in Environmental Science from Youngstown State University in Northeast Ohio.  As a former marketing intern for Happy Trails Farm Animal Sanctuary, Melissa created a vegan cookbook and printed 1,000 copies to raise funds for the rescued farm animals at the sanctuary. Recently, she earned her Plant Based Nutrition Certification from The T. Colin Campbell Center for Nutrition Studies.  When she is free, you can catch her sipping out of coconuts on the shores of sunny Southwest Florida.


Chase Avior is a Screenwriter/Director/Actor/Public Speaker with a strong background in Ethical Philosophy and Social Psychology. He has been vegan for about 6 years. “When we liberate the oppressed, we free ourselves as well.”


East Coast

John & Jessica

The East Coast tour also has two newcomers, John & Jessica, who are excited to spend the autumn months advocating for animals!

Crew member John Kane says,  “I’m from Orlando, FL, but I was born in Fairbanks, AK. I’ve actually only been vegan since this past January, but I love doing activism and talking to people about veganism. In my spare time I like to practice the piano and cook lots of vegan food. I’m also a huge Hannibal fan, and I’m kind of conflicted about it.”

Jessica Richter recently graduated from University of Washington, majoring in Global Studies. A lifelong Seattlite, Jessica has been vegan for 6 years and credits the documentary, “Earthlings,” for springing her into activism. “I started leafleting, going to animal rights events and becoming more active about animal rights after watching Earthlings, I was already vegan when I saw it, but it really got me passionate about helping create change.”

Please leave a note of thanks & encouragement for these dedicated activists in the comments below!

Compassionate Activist Spotlight: Jennifer Mennuti

We are so proud of the compassionate change-makers speaking out for animals through our Compassionate Activist Network! Right now, you’ll get to know CAN Coordinator, Jennifer Mennuti, from Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Read on to learn more about her activism experience!

Jennifer (right) has been a huge help with our 10 Billion Lives campaign at Warped Tour!

FARM: How long have you been involved in animal rights activism?
Jennifer: Shortly after becoming vegan in 2008, I watched the original version of Peaceable Kingdom and decided that just being vegan wasn’t enough to help animals. I decided that I needed to do a whole lot more to help stop this enormous suffering. I’ve dedicated a lot of my free time since that moment to bringing awareness to their plight and to the many benefits of the vegan lifestyle.

How long have you been vegan?
I’ve been vegan since 2008 when I stumbled upon Colleen Patrick-Goudreau’s podcast “Vegetarian Food For Thought.” It was around Halloween because I remember one of my first important questions was, “Which Halloween candies are vegan?”
When did you join CAN?
I joined CAN late last year after some friends told me about it.
What is your favorite outreach activity?
My favorite outreach activity is showing factory farm footage to people. I think it’s so important for people to fully grasp the misery these animals endure and video is the best way to convey this reality. Watching the reactions of the viewers is very powerful and I love answering their questions and giving them more information.

Most Saturday nights, Jennifer can be found advocating for animals in South Beach.

What is your most memorable experience while doing outreach?
My most memorable moments of outreach have been participating with the 10 Billion Lives Tour at Vans Warped Tour, which I’ve done twice. It’s a very fast paced, intense experience due to the loud music, thousands of people, hot sun, rain, and ability to show an entire video to so many young viewers who have the potential to make an enormous difference for so many animals. Kudos to the crew members and other volunteers for participating in this tour!
What do you enjoy the most about CAN?
I love the CAN Facebook page because I can see what other activists are doing and it gives me ideas of things I can try in my own community.

What are some of your goals as an activist?
Although I sometimes participate in demos concerning circus animals, rodeos, marine parks, etc. my primary goal is to educate people about the animals they eat since it affects so many more lives and it’s something we can directly impact at least three times each day. My goals involve spreading awareness as well as assisting with creating and promoting alternative food options so people have convenient, affordable, and tasty options.
What is your favorite vegan food?
I’m pretty partial to vegan cupcakes. They are available in so many flavors and at increasing locations that I’ve been able to retire from making them and now purchase them from local vendors.

Thanks for sharing, Jennifer!

Compassionate Activist Spotlight: Megan Paul

We are so proud of the compassionate changemakers speaking out for animals through our Compassionate Activist Network! In this blog, you’ll meet CAN Coordinator, Megan Paul, from Houston, Texas. Read on to learn more about her activism experience!


FARM: How long have you been involved in animal rights activism?
Megan: 13 years

How long have you been vegan?
2 years

When did you join CAN?
About 9 months ago

What is your favorite outreach activity?
I really love to leaflet. It’s a great conversation starter and SO easy to do!

What is your most memorable experience while doing outreach?
I was Leafletting my campus for the first time, Texas A&M, and I was nervous I would face backlash from the mostly agriculture major student body. Sure enough, a student came back to me about 5 minutes after I handed him a leaflet and he thanked me for opening his eyes. I haven’t stopped since!

What do you enjoy the most about CAN?
The prizes are so realistic and easy to get! But they also work with me really well to get leaflets that I need for events.

What are some of your goals as an activist?
I just want to enlighten people about the choices they’re making.

What is your favorite vegan food?
Well, since Daiya has made a cheesecake, I’m gonna have to say that!

Compassionate Activist Spotlight: Tammy Lee

Organizers with our Compassionate Activist Network (CAN) are doing AMAZING things for animals in their communities! We’re so impressed & inspired by the work they are doing that we want to shine a spotlight on them. Our first Compassionate Activist Spotlight is on Tammy Lee, one of our top CAN Coordinators!

Tammy Lee (left)

FARM: How long have you been an involved in animal rights activism?
Tammy: 25 years. It started when I attended a PETA “Animal Rights 101” workshop in 1990. This was pre-Internet, so they seated us by zipcode. While there, I met others in my local area and we connected to do an outreach table at Contra Costa Earth Day, using PETA leaflets that explained the various ways animals were exploited for food, clothing, personal care products, etc. I don’t think any of us had ever tabled before. I remember we created a paper banner on a dot matrix printer, and displayed a bowl of vegetables, each labeled with how many grams of protein it had. (Yes, some questions never change.)

How long have you been vegan?
I’ve been vegan since 1990. The catalyst was stopping in a random store for ice cream after hiking at Pt Reyes National Seashore, where I picked up a magazine. It was either The Animals Voice Magazine or The Animals Agenda. My eyes were open[ed] to a whole new way of looking at the world and the non-humans that I share it with.
When did you join CAN?
I joined in Fall 2014, after my college leafleting buddy Don raved about this new leaflet, “Have We Been Lied To?”. I was impressed by its style and inviting cover, and joined to get it into more people’s hands.

What is your favorite outreach activity?
I like leafleting both for its ease in setup and the spontaneous nature of the activity. I do also enjoy tabling, which allows for more in-depth conversations, creativity, and a broader presentation of material.

What is your most memorable experience while doing outreach?
Gosh. This is a hard question since I’ve been doing outreach since 1990. I’ve had so many experiences, but the one that rendered me speechless was my first SF Pride in 2003. So I’m at the booth with my husband Chris James and Nora Kramer. We’re right on the main thoroughfare, and this woman [approaches] us with a question. But I couldn’t answer, because I was shocked and preoccupied with her toplessness and where I should be looking… Fortunately Nora handled the situation with aplomb. I learned then how different tabling at Pride is than any other event. Our group, Bay Area Vegetarians, had a table at SF Pride until 2010, but nothing topped that experience.
What do you enjoy the most about CAN?
I enjoy hearing what others are doing around the country to help animals. Even though I live in the San Francisco Bay Area, which is overall very vegan-friendly, I live in Napa county, where there is not a single vegan or vegetarian restaurant. There’s only a few of us who leaflet, too. I would love to connect with others in my area via CAN.

What are some of your goals as an activist?
I don’t really have any goals. I just hope to encourage more people to eat vegan & to educate themselves about the issues, and to be active for animals as long as I’m able to.

What is your favorite vegan food?
The Banh Mi Salad at Veggie Grill, or cooking up a batch of spicy beans and rice at home, and topping it with shredded lettuce, fresh cilantro, and diced avocado.

Meet the First 2015 10 Billion Lives Warped Tour Crew!

Today is the first day of the 10 Billion Lives summer-long outreach at Vans Warped Tour! Two different crews will be following the famous music festival from coast-to-coast, educating young concert-goers about the truth behind meat, dairy, and eggs and helping them move toward a vegan diet. Meet the first crew that will kick off this exciting season of outreach!



Jillian Lowry (driver) is from Cleveland, Ohio and has been a vegan for nearly 10 years. After learning about the various forms of exploitation occurring in the animal agriculture industry, she knew animal rights was her calling. Jillian participated in animal rights activism while earning her Master’s in Ireland and continues to support the cause in the USA. Just finishing off last semester’s 10 Billion Lives National Tour, she is excited to drive the crew across the country for Warped Tour! Go Jillian!

Radish (crew leader) has mostly been involved in vegan outreach/animal rights activism (FARM, peta2, Vegan Outreach, Direct Action Everywhere, etc.), but is also involved with anarchist/community organizing (like Food Not Bombs). Radish cares deeply about environmental, feminist, and LGBTQ+ rights issues. This is Radish’s THIRD Warped Tour with FARM, in addition to a fall semester of outreach with the 10 Billion Lives Southwest tour in 2014. Great to have you back, Radish!

Raven Corrigan is from Chicago, Illinois, and has been one of FARM’s top coordinators in our Compassionate Activist Network! Through CAN, Raven has done leafleting and pay-per-view events. They have also been a fantastic volunteer every time the 10 Billion Lives tour comes to their area. Raven is a current college student and has been vegan for 3 years. Great to have you on tour, Raven!

Karly Placek joins the crew from Monroe, Wisconsin. Karly was the founder & president of the Ithaca College Animal Rights club! She earned her BA in Documentary Studies. Karly has volunteered with Farm Sanctuary in Watkins Glen, New York. Fun fact: She can identify nearly any species of primate. Welcome aboard, Karly!

Lydia Harris is currently a student at New York University. After 8 years of vegetarianism, she has now been vegan for one year. She has interned with Farm Sanctuary, Mercy For Animals, and Farm Animal Rights Movement; volunteered with Missouri Wildlife Rescue Center; is a co-organizer of Vegan P:OWER Events; and is an undergraduate representative for Student Animal Legal Defense Fund. Wow! Great to have you, Lydia!

Remembering Our Friend, Lisa Shapiro

Lisa Shapiro, Vegan Saint

by Tofurky Founder Seth Tibbott


Lisa Shapiro dedicated her life to promoting veganism as a means of relieving the suffering of animals.  She felt the suffering of animals deeply in every fiber of her being at a level few people on earth have ever achieved.   She worked tirelessly to advance veganism throughout her life in varied professional and volunteer capacities.  She gave her heart, her soul, and her wisdom freely to anyone she felt was working to advance vegan causes.  In doing this for over 28 years, she created a body of knowledge and network of connections in the animal rights movement that is unrivaled.   Though her contributions were immense, she remained humble, thinking of herself as a “grassroots activist.”  No young activist ever paid for a meal or hotel in Boulder if Lisa knew about it. Though her Boulder condominium was basic, it was often overflowing with vegan warriors who found a safe haven and warm meal.

Lisa grew up in Brooklyn, New York and graduated from the University of Albany in 1985 moving to Boulder, Colorado that same year.  A “righteous vegetarian” at the time, Lisa got a job at the Crystal Street Market on Pearl Street working in their deli.  She became vegan soon after meeting Jack Norris who was handing out “Please Don’t Drink My Mama’s Milk” brochures on the Pearl Street Mall and also talking with a woman who came into the store wearing a tee shirt with a picture of a veal calf on it.

In 1987, Lisa was hired by the Boulder based, Wild Oats Market as their deli manager.  She soon veganized the deli and continued to work for Wild Oats in various managerial capacities for 17 years.  It was here as a purchaser that she became intimately familiar with the struggles that small vegan businesses faced in the marketplace.

In 2001, Lisa took a job with the AGOA African Opportunity Association in Ghana and Cameroon.  Her job there was to help people develop sustainable, fair trade small businesses.  Though her salary was an astounding $1,000 per day while in Africa, she gave most of her funds to the people she was working with to help them with their ventures.  Travelling to Africa as a vegan was hard and witnessing the suffering of human and non-human animals was very difficult for Lisa and she quit after two years.

Coming back to Boulder, overwhelmed from her African experience, Lisa became depressed and stayed close to home.   In 2006, she started the Boulder Vegan Meet Up, which was one of her proudest achievements.   Today this is one of the largest groups in the USA with almost 1000 members, 350 of which attended a Compassionate Vegan Thanksgiving that Lisa organized in 2014.

For the next few years Lisa worked with several vegan startup companies, selflessly giving them the benefit of her accumulated wisdom and contacts.   Among these companies was V Dog for which she had a special affinity.  She was also a trusted member of the Veg Fund Board which promoted vegan businesses and nonprofit entities.

In 2011 she founded “All Things Vegan,” a consulting company designed to promote quality vegan products, while expanding awareness of the positive impact of vegan lifestyles on animals, people, and the planet.  In that year she began working with The Tofurky Company as the company’s first social media director.  It soon became apparent that Lisa had much more to give and she was hired as a full time Marketing Coordinator.  Though at this time, Lisa was suffering increasing pain in her back and exploring a variety of treatment options, she enthusiastically kept a full work schedule of attending veg fests, trade shows, demos and other industry events, always representing the company in a stellar light.  She continued to be a valuable employee until the last days of her life.

But as much as Lisa accomplished in her professional life, she may have accomplished more in her nonprofessional life.   On her own unpaid time, Lisa enthusiastically handed out vegan literature on the Pearl Street Mall, organized circus protests, cooked countless meals for weary travelers, counseled new vegans and engaged people honestly and directly about their eating habits.   Though her body would shake, Lisa was never one not to ask the hard, often unpopular questions, about how people knowingly or unknowingly treated animals.  Arguably she has single handedly created more vegans than any lone individual acting on their own conscience.  This fact was recognized by the great Ingrid Newkirk of PETA last fall when she hailed Lisa as one of the “Unsung Vegan Heroes” of the Pollination Project.  This award came with a $1,000 prize which Lisa quickly donated to her favorite organizations.

Even as her body declined, Lisa’s mind and spirit somehow carried on.   While in the hospital suffering from unimaginable pain, Lisa would give vegan literature for visitors to leave in the waiting room and ask them to give the food she could not eat to the Boulder homeless.

No longer with us in body, Lisa’s passionate work lives on.  It lives on in the darkest reaches of the factory farm system which now shows signs of disruption.  It is alive in the minds of “happy meat” lovers who have been challenged with inconvenient truths.  It flourishes on college campuses that have new vegans demanding meal options in dining halls.  It ripples outwards from the hundreds of people Lisa convinced to give plant based diets a try.  Through her honesty, love and activism, Lisa has left a powerful legacy in her wake.  Though it is unlikely that we will ever see another Vegan Saint like her, we have all been blessed to be alive at the same time as Lisa Shapiro.  Thanks to Saint Lisa, the lives of all animals, human and non-human, have been made better.    And there is no greater legacy than that.
