VUNA / AVS Call to Action
Do you have access to a database of media contacts? Or, do you simply have access to a computer
with a database program that can help you systematically send out press releases? The Vegetarian
Union of North America and the American Vegan Society have put forth a *Call to Action* since
their Oregon conference in early August. The document is a clarion call to those key people and
institutions in our society who stand between the general public and a vegetarian way of life. It
is directed at cardiologists, chefs, government officials, physicians, schools, the beef and
dairy industries, the health and life insurance industries, as well as cancer and heart
societies. The document is directed towards the public in general as well, that is anyone
concerned with their health, the environment, and farm animals. A vegetarian diet should be
recognized, it says, as one to adopt or strive for in light of recent overwhelming proof. The
document cites the recent scientific studies of Dr. Dean Ornish. VUNA and AVS are asking
vegetarian activists to distribute the proclamation via media points accompanied by a press
Contact Vegetarian Union of North America for more information. VUNA, P.O. Box 9710,
Washington D.C. 20016.
