Compassionate Times: Twin Cities Veg Living, Issue 2

Twin Cities Veg Living 2016 - coverWe've just published the second issue of Twin Cities Veg Living, and we're very excited to share it with the world.

This annual 12-page magazine is a way for us to share who we are and what we do. You’ll find that our campaigns, programs, values, and mission are represented in its contents. Along with that, the magazine is a useful resource for those moving toward a plant-based diet. It features information that's especially relevant to those who live in the Twin Cities area, and it shows how veg-friendly our community is becoming.

If you haven't seen the magazine yet, you can find it at our tabling events throughout the year or read it online.

Most of us think that the meat, milk, and eggs that we buy come from animals who have lived happy, healthy lives. However, undercover investigations have revealed a different picture over and over again. Animals on modern farms are routinely treated in ways that would be grounds for felony cruelty charges if applied to a cat or dog. Yet, like cats and dogs, farmed animals have complex emotions including the capacity to suffer.

Compassionate Action for Animals exists to build a truly animal-friendly community in the Twin Cities region. Through outreach, education, and community building, we educate the public about farmed animal suffering and help people move towards a vegan diet. We are a nonprofit organization with a staff of two and more than 150 volunteers.

If you feel moved to advocate for animals, please consider supporting our work by volunteering, donating, or joining us at one of our events. If you’re interested in transitioning to plant-based diet, visit our Veg Resources page where you’ll find recipes and a variety of tips that can help you on your journey towards a more compassionate lifestyle.

Together, we can make a difference for the animals!
