Our new summer intern is Sarah Hanshew! She is bringing her experience from coursework on blogging and social media to the VegFund Blog and Facebook education campaign. We love how motivated and passionate she is about helping people go and stay vegan, no matter what misconceptions or obstacles they may be dealing with. We're looking forward to seeing what kinds of creative ideas she is going to come up with before she wraps up her internship!

Summer Conferences - Thank You!

The VegFund staff has had the pleasure this summer of brushing shoulders with thousands of animal activists between Taking Action for Animals in Washington DC and the Animal Rights National Conference in Los Angeles. We want to extend our thanks to the many people who stopped by our booths or signed up for our mailing list. We really appreciate these opportunities to connect in person with old friends and potential new ones, and we were also excited to present our mission to the activist community and hear what else is going on in the movement. We'll see you all again, and anyone who missed us, at AR 2015!

Combatting Activist Burnout

We usually use this space to discuss ways to make your activism more effective, but one of the most important strategies is actually to take care of yourself! The public is more likely to want to interact with an activist who seems happy and healthy than one who doesn't. If you're experiencing feelings like guilt, hopelessness, and anger toward the movement, these tips may give you some ideas on how to feel better and reinvigorate your activism.
