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.
