Bridges of Respect

Bridges of Respect, a program of Compassionate Action for Animals, provides free humane education presentations for middle schools, high schools, after-school programs, colleges, and community groups in the Twin Cities metro area.

Founded in 1999, Bridges has given thousands of presentations to tens of thousands of students and has received excellent feedback from both teachers and students. The interactive presentations raise awareness about important issues affecting people, animals, and the environment. The program encourages critical thinking, leading participants to understand how their actions can have an impact.

Programs are flexible in length, modified for each age group, and tailored to fit curricular needs. Plant-based food samples are often included with presentations.

To request a free presentation for your class or if you would like to learn more about volunteering with Bridges of Respect, email info@bridgesofrespect.org.

Cooking Classes

Cooking and knowing what to eat are often barriers for people looking to explore animal-friendly diets. It might seem difficult now, but preparing vegan foods doesn’t have to be a chore!

By attending our inexpensive (or sometimes free) cooking classes, attendees get a chance to try a variety of foods, learn about nutrition, and have their questions on veg eating answered.

Stay tuned for the next cooking class by regularly checking our Events Calendar or contacting our program coordinator, Kelly.

Some of our past classes have included classes on holiday cooking, raw foods, baking, and many more dishes.

Film Screenings

Documentaries and movies present unique insights for viewers of the animals’ plight in a way that words and photographs perhaps cannot.

As film is such a powerful tool, we utilize it often. One of the ways we do this is through regular showings of quality documentaries and screenings. This provides viewers an opportunity to discover at more depth the complex lives of other animals or the wretched conditions of factory farms. Not all the films we show are of such a heavy nature, rather they are stories of hope and inspiration.

We have an archive of online videos on a range of topics related to animal issues and vegetarianism.

Films that we have screened include:

  • Peaceable Kingdom
  • The Witness
  • Earthlings
  • The Emotional World of Farm Animals
  • Chicken Run
  • Vegetarian Cooking with Compassionate Cooks
