MayDay & Cinco de Mayo in Pictures

CAA had a presence at both the MayDay Festival and Cinco de Mayo – West Side Saint Paul again this year.

At both events, we did video outreach, using pay-per-view and virtual reality to raise awareness about farmed animal suffering. Through the video outreach, we had great conversations. Some said they didn’t want eat meat anymore after seeing the video.

We also participated in the MayDay parade again this year. Our eye-catching display, created by our University of Minnesota student group, was photographed and cheered on numerous times. The walking cow puppet, brought to life by Marina and Liberty Kirkeide, charmed young and old. Marching alongside the Animal Rights Coalition, we experienced an inspiring sense of solidarity.

Here are the numbers:

137 video views at Cinco de Mayo
214 video views at MayDay
309 Guides to Animal Free Eating shared
25 Spanish copies of “The Power of our Diet Choices” shared
29 Spanish vegetarian starter guides shared
18 African-American Vegan Starter Guides shared
28 copies of Twin Cities Veg Living shared


Thanks to all the volunteers who helped to make this possible. Special thanks to Brooke Reynolds and Angelica Fabiola Vásquez Hernández for taking these photos!


Our next big outreach event is the Twin Cities Pride Festival. We hope you’ll join us for that!

We also have two upcoming training sessions which will introduce you to volunteering with CAA and teach you how to do video outreach.
