If you're looking for a place to connect with other people who care about making the world better for all animals and you're ready to start taking action to realize that vision, this is the group for you. We are experienced, active, effective, and BUSY! There are lots of opportunities to help, like leafleting, protests, vegan food giveaways, tabling events, teaching workshops, reaching out to companies to work with them on changing policies, letter writing, sending furs to wildlife rehabs to help orphaned and injured wildlife - we do it all! We welcome people who are at different points in their journey, but our group's values include not using animals for any human purposes. We're working to liberate animals from all human oppression and we do not support efforts that encourage using animals in a "nicer" way. We love to eat and socialize as much as anyone, but there is already a wonderful, active Minneapolis Vegan Meet-up group that holds dine outs, potlucks, and other social events. This group is focused on increasing participation in animal activism in Minnesota. It's still a great way to meet people and socialize, but social events are not our major focus.
