When the large orgs (with their millions of dollars of annual donations and hundreds of paid employees) promote vegetarianism, what they do is dump the hard work on grassroots vegan advocates to promote and defend what is actually meaningful for nonhuman animals (veganism). Not only is their promoting vegetarianism wrong for animals, it is completely unfair to grassroots vegan advocates. I hope vegans wake up to this fact and start supporting grassroots vegan advocacy. That is where the real hope for animals lives.
