One decade ago, shortly after being handed a leaflet exposing the cruelties forced upon animals raised for food, Aashish Bhimani approached Compassion Over Killing about getting involved to help educate others — and he’s never looked back. Since joining our volunteer team, Aashish has coordinated leafleting and tabling events, helped train new volunteers, hosted educational workshops in schools, and spearheaded a successful restaurant outreach campaign in his community. Most recently, he worked with Telegraph Station in Arlington, Virginia to add several new hearty vegan options to its menu.
