Get to know Martha Eichlersmith, CAA Volunteer

August 28, 2023

Martha and Wednesday, a resident at Charlie’s Acres, a sanctuary in California

Martha Eichlersmith moved back to the Twin Cities recently and attended the CAA’s Annual Banquet with her vegan friends. She had a lot of fun! Plus, she was impressed by CAA and was inspired to get involved. While there, she spoke with Laura Matanah, CAA’s Executive Director, about volunteering.

As a result of that conversation, Martha signed up for her first-ever volunteer experience. She decided to work with the Twin Cities Chef Challenge committee because it sounded like a great way to promote plant-based eating. 

Her role was to help recruit restaurants to participate in the August Challenge. She got 19 signed up! And now, she is promoting the Challenge via social media posts. Martha is having great success in getting individuals to try Challenge dishes and rate them.

Being around people interested in promoting veganism is important to Martha. And she relishes time with people who work to end animal exploitation and suffering – being part of this community comforts her. And taking action to put animals first aligns with her values.

In her free time, she enjoys knitting cotton sweaters! She also has a guinea pig named Blossom, whom she loves so much. And when it comes to vegan restaurants, her current favorite is J Selby’s.
