Veggie Options for a Balmy Backyard Barbeque

Barbeque Potluck on August 22nd!Here in Minnesota, we're having unprecedented summer weather: not so hot and not so humid. Perfect for a backyard barbeque! And how convenient that Compassionate Action for Animals is hosting a barbeque potluck on Friday, August 22nd at the home of Suzy Sorensen, 1099 Lombard Ave in St. Paul from 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm.

If the thought of a barbeque conjures an unappetizing image of charred animal flesh (aka hot dogs and hamburgers), we've got good news for you. At our potluck, we're taking animals off the menu and replacing them with a variety of colorful, flavorful plant-based options. Bring on the Tofurky!

Why?

Most of us would like to think that the meat, milk, and eggs we buy come from animals who have lived happy, healthy lives. Unfortunately, nothing could be further from the truth. Like cats and dogs, the animals we eat have complex emotions including the ability to suffer. Yet on modern farms, they are treated with such disregard that similar treatment to a cat or dog would be grounds for felony cruelty charges in Minnesota.

We need your participation! Please volunteer, donate, or come to an event. With your voice to advocate for animals, we can make a huge difference.
