Lin and Robert - EVEN Co-Founders
Humanity's true moral test, its fundamental test, consists of its attitude toward those who are at its mercy: animals. And in this respect, humankind has suffered a fundamental debacle, a debacle so fundamental that all others stem from it. - Milan Kundera, The Unbearable Lightness of Being
For many years the media have been afraid of the Goliath power of the meat industry. (But David is coming!) - Pegeen Fitzgerald
Thousands of animals [now billions] are butchered every day without a shadow of remorse. It cries vengeance upon all the human race. - Romain Rolland (1866-1944)

...we evolved into vegans, always according to the same Gandhian standard: Live your life in ways that do not support wars, whosoever are the victims. - Tom Regan, Read EVEN's exclusive interview with Tom HERE.
You have just dined, and however scrupulously the slaughterhouse is concealed in the graceful distance of miles, there is complicity. - Ralph Waldo Emerson
With so many outstanding worthy causes, EVEN chose to direct its efforts at what it knew would be most meaningful to people, to our non-human friends, and to the planet. Since it's not possible to be all things to all people, EVEN selected education with a focus on outreach. We use our Mission Statement to guide our thinking, our plans, and our actions.
EVEN's Mission Statement is to inform, educate and encourage our members---as well as the larger community---by providing pertinent information on veganism and its positive impact on the health of the planet and all its inhabitants.
EVEN serves as a resource for those seeking information on a healthful, vegan lifestyle.
EVEN's emphasis is one of non-violence, compassion and sustainability.
Focus is on the interconnectedness of all life and how a plant-based diet benefits the earth, non-human animals, and the individual.
