New Job!

I am pleased and privileged to announce that I’m joining the VegFund team.

When I first stopped eating animals over a quarter century ago, animal advocacy and vegetarianism in the United States were very, very different. What was normal then is no longer the best way to help animals today. It is vital that we learn and evolve.

This is why VegFund is such an important group. Every day, VegFund is driving new and innovative advocacy, while learning from the experience of activists across the country and around the globe. VegFund also supports the latest research into effective advocacy. This makes sure anyone, no matter where they are, can help animals as much as possible.

VegFund isn’t driven by inertia or tradition. Rather, they are at the leading edge of veg advocacy, actively building the future we all want.

I look forward to continuing our work together.

For the animals,

-Matt Ball

PS: Of course, VegFund’s vital work is only possible because of thoughtful donors and amazing activists. We all want to have the greatest impact possible. That is what drives VegFund. That is what drives me. And that is why I am so honored to be a part of the team.
