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.

Additional plans include collaboration with other Macalester student organizations, as well as the University of Minnesota CAA branch. This collaborative effort will focus on finding relevant and educational speakers to discuss plant-based diets and animal rights efforts with the students.
