Want to learn how to get strong bones on a vegan diet? How female oppression and the dairy industry are interconnected? Why food access matters in creating a vegan world? Where to find the best vegan ice cream in the Twin Cities?
The answers to all these questions and more can be found in the latest issue of Twin Cities Veg Living, our annual 12-page magazine that shows the how and why of compassionate living.
In honor of the 20th anniversary of Compassionate Action for Animals, we have a new visual brand identity. Super exciting!
The redesign process began last fall, led by designer Danami Maurice Champion. A team of CAA staff, board members, and volunteers gave feedback on design direction, and now we can share the end result: CAA’s new logo, colors, typography, and more. (Twin Cities Veg Fest and Bridges of Respect will each get new looks later this year. Stay tuned for that!)
Over the next six months you’ll see a gradual changeover in CAA’s visual materials, everything from our printed brochure to our social media to our website. Today, you get to feast your eyes on the overall plan, a bold new look that aims to reach a bigger spectrum of the Twin Cities community. You’ll also read about the ideas behind the design choices, starting with the attributes of our brand.
Compassionate Action for Animals is approaching its twentieth anniversary, and with that we’ve got exciting plans for a redesign of our brand identity, which includes logo, typography, color palette, and more. And not only are we getting a redesign for CAA, but we’re also redesigning for two of our key programs, Twin Cities Veg Fest and Bridges of Respect.
The initial idea for this project came out of a desire for our logos to more accurately reflect our mission and to attract more of our target audiences.
As members of the board, we’ve witnessed CAA help thousands of people act on their compassion, change the way they eat, and speak up for farmed animals in 2017.
Did you know that 2018 will be our 20th anniversary? To fund an expansion of programs, we’ve launched an ambitious campaign: $24,000 by December 31. And we’re all chipping in to match your donation dollar for dollar!
What makes an animal advocate? How can CAA best support people in their process? This is one of the questions we asked ourselves in creating our new strategic plan.
Advocates grow our movement by increasing awareness of animal suffering and building a welcoming community. The community supports people in moving toward a plant-based diet and developing effective advocacy skills.
CAA is systematically building more advocates through training, information sessions, and community building. Few things demonstrate that as strongly as the growth of our University of Minnesota student group. Yash and Nathan are two of its leaders.
