I loved doing my first tabling event, spreading the good word about veganism! It was part of College of San Mateo’s Earth Day celebration and job fair. This is the first year that it’s been set up as more of a job fair, and it was a big success. I didn’t get as many visitors as a lot of the other tables, because I wasn’t actually offering jobs… but I did have a spread sheet showing lots of areas where vegans might want to have careers.
From chefs to marketing executive, there are an abundance of jobs in the animal rights/eco-conscious arena. Thankfully, at CSM, sustainability is a big focus, so we are striving to actually work it into our curriculum.
My actual display consisted mostly of the data from Cowspiracy. If you haven’t checked out their infographic, it’s definitely worth doing. The information there may just blow your mind. As I keep mentioning, research shows that animal agriculture contributes more to climate change than all fossil fuels combined. And yet, it’s hardly talked about at all. I plan to address that plenty in future posts.
