With school back in session, we’re thinking about all the ways we learn and teach compassion for animals.
Our Bridges of Respect humane education is reaching people of all ages in middle schools, high schools, colleges, and community programs. Watch the inspiring new video to learn more about this CAA program, now in its eighteenth year.
We hope you’ll share the video with Twin Cities educators who might be interested in free classroom presentations. And please “like” the new Bridges of Respect Facebook page.
Even those of us who have been in the movement for years can learn new animal advocacy skills. A number of us went to the 2017 Animal Rights National Conference in August to do just that. Read all about it.
Lastly, CAA continues to have an active student group at the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities. In fact, we had more than seventy-five students attend our first campus meeting of the semester. That’s unprecedented!
If you’re a college student from a different school who wants to get involved, email me. I’d love to help you advocate for animals on your campus.
By the way, you can look forward to a new format for this Weekly Update, coming next week.
With the animals,
