Our Campaign Materials
We are sharing these successful materials in the hope that you can
use them elsewhere to fight against the exploitation of battery hens.
(Note: If you are asked for a password in order to download a file just

In order to educate students and staff at Wesleyan University about
the treatment of battery hens we canvased the campus with many thought-provoking
and attention-getting posters along with factsheets (best placed in toilet
stalls). We also tabled heavily with our petition
(doc) and pamphlets [Page
1 - Page 2 (doc)].
Additionally we wrote a number of editorials (see below) for the main student
publications. Through these efforts we sucessfully made the plight
of battery hens (a new vocabularly word for the majority of students and
staff) one of the most visible and active campaigns on campus.
After much research, we returned to the Wesleyan Student Assembly (WSA).
For the presentation of our resolution to
the assembly we made a powerpoint
presentation (ppt) and read letters of support from Professor
of Philosophy Lori Gruen and a local organic,
free-range egg farmer.

before and during EON's campaign, along with our proposal for what eggs
to sell in the future as a result of the resolution.
Minutes from our first
(pdf) and second (doc)
meetings with the WSA. (To give you an idea of what your student
assembly may say if you run a similar campaign).
