What we're about

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.

Protest Four Paws and a Tail

Northtown Mall

* We protest EVERY Sunday, same place, same time! * Join us for a peaceful protest against Four Paws and a Tail on public property near Northtown Mall, 398 Northtown Dr NE, Blaine, Minnesota from 1:00 to 2:00 p.m. Meet us at the intersection of County Rd 10 and Jefferson. We will stand in the grassy area in front of the Chipotle. Signs are provided or bring your own. We oppose Four Paws and a Tail's business model of buying companion animals from intensive breeding facilities and selling them to the public. We also oppose the idea that because a breeding facility is USDA licensed, it is also ethical.

Help, I'm Going Vegan!

Fuller Park

You want to go vegan or recently made the switch, but you have all these questions. Wouldn't it be nice if you could ask them all in one sitting and have knowledgeable and caring vegans give straight-forward answers? You know who you are. Come on out, hit us with your best questions and we'll hit you with our best answers. We'll cover nutrition, ethics, the environment, how to gently explain to grandma that her banana bread isn't vegan... and how to teach her to make it vegan! These workshops are fun, laid back, and informative. Join Vegan University hosts, Ashley and Kelsey, in Fuller Park from 7:00-8:30 pm. Feel free to come for as long as you'd like. We'll meet at the tables near the swimming pool, between the basketball courts and playground. Look for our large Vegan University sign on the table. Bring your questions, a pad of paper to take notes, a face mask, and a chair or blanket to sit on! We'll provide resources and recipes for you to take home. This workshop is not designed for people that have been vegan for a long time, so if that's you please sit this one out. If you're a longtime vegan and have friends/family/co-workers that would benefit from this workshop please share! **Follow ARC's other Meetup page, Minneapolis Vegan Meetup, for more events!**
