Every year, CAA has a table at the Twin Cities Pride Festival, and this year was no exception. For two days in Loring Park, we leafleted and conducted video outreach on behalf of animals, and we reached a lot of people along the way. Over the course of the weekend, we gave away more than 1,000 leaflets and got more than 590 video views. Wow!
Pride is ideal venue for sharing our message of compassion. The festival itself is devoted to the idea of expanding the circle of compassion to include the LGBTQ community. The people we reach there tend to be especially open to the idea of opening their hearts to the plight of farmed animals. One festival attendee remarked, “This was the most important part of the day for me.”
Thanks to all the volunteers who helped with outreach and to Luke White for taking these photos!
