Come be one of the dozens of volunteers leafleting at colleges all over the Twin Cities and Minnesota! It will be CAA's biggest leafleting event this season, and many volunteers are even taking the day off of school or work to volunteer.
College leafleting involves standing outside of common areas and handing out brochures to students passing by. Leafleting is a great way to help animals. In just an hour, it is possible to distribute over a hundred 'Compassionate Choices' pamphlets on a college campus, getting the message of compassion out to hundreds of open-minded college students!
Minnesota College Leafleting Week is an opportunity for you to join dozens of other local volunteers in the biggest leafleting week of the year! We will have several volunteers at each college (see list below). If you are interested in helping all day, we need on-site-coordinators at each college to manage leaflets. If you would like to help leaflet for a portion of the day, we can arrange transportation (if needed) to and from a local college.
If you can help with this event, please email Sam at firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, time(s) that you can help, and if you need transportation. Let us know if there is a specific college you would like to leaflet at.
We will be leafleting at the following schools in the Minneapolis and St. Paul area:
- University of Minnesota - Twin Cities Campuses
- Saint Thomas University, St. Paul
- Normandale Community College, Bloomington
- Augsburg College, Minneapolis (near West Bank U of M)

On April 5, Compassionate Action for Animals celebrated another year of advocating for animals at our 8th Annual Banquet. The fundraiser raised support for our outreach, education, and community building on behalf of farmed animals.
Over eighty guests attended this year's event, which included a silent auction and reception, a four-course vegan meal, and a presentation about CAA's work.
Following the meal, CAA co-founder Dave Rolsky recapped last year's accomplishments and gave a preview of what's to come. Sarah Brammer-Shlay spoke about her volunteer experience and how working with CAA has been fulfilling for her and has helped animals.

If you missed CAA's annual Veg Week last fall, you have another chance to pledge to be vegetarian for a week during US VegWeek.
Taking place April 23-29, US VegWeek is a great opportunity to join with folks across the country to eschew meat for a week. Pledge today and explore the benefits of plant-based eating. You can sign up for daily emails to receive free recipes, tips, meal ideas and more, and you can also sign up for our free VegWeek Starter Pack, loaded with everything you need to get started plus lots of product coupons! We're partnering with Compassion Over Killing to bring you this great opportunity!
Becoming vegetarian reduces animal suffering. If you're shy to commit to a lifetime of being meat free but curious about incorporating more vegetarian options into your diet, pledging for US VegWeek is a great way to start out!
