Who is Viva!USA:
Viva!USA works for positive change through grassroots activism. They promote lifestyle changes that include moving to a veggie diet. They investigations of factory farms to gather evidence of widespread animal cruelty, then structure their campaigns around this evidence. Youth outreach is a vital part of Viva!USA: their campaign materials are produced largely for students and young activists. Their campaign materials are popular across the nation--they are regularly inundated with requests for their teen veggie packets as well as their booklet with tips for new vegans, Vegan Basics.
Viva!USA’s campaigns have resulted in nationwide publicity for animals farmed for food. Their ongoing campaign against the factory farming of ducks has resulted in astonishing successes. Their one time adversary, Whole Foods Market, has made a dramatic and surprising commitment not only
to improve the conditions in which ducks are raised, but also to demand stricter animal welfare guidelines from all its suppliers of animal meat. In fact, the CEO of Whole Foods made a commitment to animals that goes beyond what anyone could have expected by becoming vegan himself!
