Who We Are

Compassionate Action for Animals (CAA) is a nonprofit organization with a staff of two and over 200 volunteers. Our mission is to encourage people to embrace their empathy for farmed animals and move toward a plant-based diet. We do this through increasing awareness of farmed animal suffering, building community with plant-based eating, and nurturing advocates in the Twin Cities region.

If you’re interested in transitioning to a plant-based diet, check out our veg resources. We also invite you to check out our list of upcoming events and volunteer opportunities.

Together, we can make a difference for farmed animals.

Getting to Twin Cities Veg Fest

Twin Cities Veg Fest is coming up on Sunday, September 15! Do you know how you're going to get to Harriet Island Park in St. Paul?

Biking, walking, and arriving by car are all options, and we're most excited to announce that our Zero-Waste Sponsor, Metro Transit, will be offering free rides from Union Depot to the festival!

Click here to claim your pass for a free ride to and from the festival!

You can combine transportation modes to get to the festival—hop on a light rail to Union Station and then take the shuttle from Union Station to Harriet Island Park and enjoy the festival!

Riding with Metro Transit is an awesome way to reduce your carbon footprint as well as the festival's AND if you drive, it means you can spend more time at the festival rather than looking around for a place to park! We hope you'll consider riding with our Zero-Waste Sponsor to this year's festival.
