Wondering about the farmers’ protests in India? Read the summary below from The Institute for Agriculture and Trade Policy and other racial and food justice organizations about why the protests are important, including the ability to make a living growing vegetables, rather than animals.
Compassionate Action for Animals signed on to their statement of support that will be delivered to those protesting, joining Food Empowerment Project and others in solidarity. Change in India could help pave the way for a more equitable, compassionate food infrastructure in the United States, as well.

In the months preceding the general election, I wrote more than 200 postcards to encourage voter turnout. It was a wonderful experience to feel like I was taking part in something bigger than myself during a time of isolation. When the election came to a close, I wondered if there might be other fun ways to volunteer from home.

A new branch of Compassionate Action for Animals has been approved by the Student Organization Board at Macalester College (St. Paul, MN). The branch will begin activities starting in February 2021. The organization plans to conduct meetings twice a month with a focus on teaching students about healthy, affordable plant-based options. Additional plans include collaboration with other Macalester student organizations, as well as the University of Minnesota CAA branch. This collaborative effort will focus on finding relevant and educational speakers to discuss plant-based diets and animal rights efforts with the students.
