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.
Together, we can make a difference for farmed animals.
CAA and Cookie Cart: A Sweet Partnership
Cookie Cart is a youth employment program in the Twin Cities that provides teens 15 to 18 years old with meaningful work, life, and leadership skills through paid work experience and training. This year’s stay-at-home requirements meant that youth have been working mostly virtually, and CAA has played a vital role in providing those experiences.
