Ronnie Steinau – An Appreciation
We met at the Taking Action for Animals Conference in Washington, DC in August 2006. Ronnie and friends from San Diego, CA stopped by our exhibit table and we talked about the plight of chickens. She said she wished she could work for animals instead of her current employment. It so happened we needed a new database manager and Correspondent starting in September. Would she be interested? Turned out she would be.
Twelve years later, Ronnie is a dynamic member of our staff. If you’re a donor to UPC, you’ve met her, thanking you for your support, answering your questions, always helpful and courteous. Ronnie is a tireless activist as well. She energizes fellow activists to get out there and leaflet for the birds and speak up for them – in shopping malls, recreational parks – all kinds of places where people are gathered for pleasure. One of our members recently wrote thanking Ronnie for providing helpful information: “Thank you, Ronnie! And thank you, really, for all that YOU do at UPC. Karen and all of us are lucky to have you. Not to mention the birds!”
We are indeed lucky to have Ronnie on our staff. She is a totally dedicated animal rights vegan activist who both finds and creates opportunities to interrupt the comfort zones: Remember the Animals. Please Help Them. Don’t Eat Them. Choose Vegan. – Karen Davis
