Step #4


Making this decision doesn't happen in a vacuum. It may impact various parts of your life, especially if you live with others. Of course, each person needs to make their own decision. Keeping in mind this topic can become sensitive.


Also, when you learn more, it’s easy to become passionate about helping others be healthier, the animals, and the environment. A best practice may be to listen carefully and stay open. Gauge how much the other person is able to hear, and what’s driving their interest.


In addition, you may want to connect with others in your community. People with similar interests may gather on FacebookMeet-up, or a local group with virtual and in person events. Many of the larger cities also have VegFest, which are usually an annual event with speakers, vegan food samplings, vendors, etc.


VegEvents is a worldwide hub for events.

Rescue Advocacy Education

"Vegan Outreach is a 501c3 nonprofit organization working to end violence towards animals. We seek a future when sentient animals are no longer exploited as commodities.

We focus on reaching the people who are motivated enough to make changes now—there are always many in our target audience who just need some guidance.

Founded in 1993, we’ve been most known for our massive outreach program of leafleting on college campuses. At its peak, we were handing booklets to over 1 million students at 1,000 schools per semester.

By steadily increasing the number of vegans, we’re laying the groundwork to reach a tipping point in which sweeping public policy changes for animals will become realistic."

"Farm Sanctuary was founded in 1986 to combat the abuses of factory farming, advocate for institutional reforms, and encourage a new awareness and understanding of farm animals and the benefits of plant-based living.  In recent years, science has confirmed the inhumane and destructive impact of animal agriculture — a food system based on interrelated oppression and injustice."

“The Institute for Humane Education (IHE) offers graduate programs, professional learning, and resources for teachers and changemakers looking to create a more just, sustainable, and humane future. IHE believes that educating people to be solutionaries is one of the most effective ways we can address the challenges we face.


Our mission is to educate people to create a world in which all humans, animals, and nature can thrive."

“Mercy For Animals is committed to transparency and excellence, from how we deliver our programs to how we interact with our beloved supporters and donors.
