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're joining Bailing out Benji and Puppy Mill Free Minnesota 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. Note this is an ongoing event, ARC will post events for the protests we're able to be present at, but for other the dates, there is more information here: https://www.facebook.com/events/1758861590839508/

Rodeo Protest

Xcel Energy Center

***There are two dates for this protest-Friday January 25th, 6:00-7:30pm, as well as Saturday January 26th, 6:00-7:30pm*** Join us for a peaceful protest at the Cinch World's Toughest Rodeo. This rodeo includes bareback riding, saddle bronc riding, bull riding, and barrel racing. The horses, bulls, and steer, often suffer broken ribs, backs, and legs, torn tails, punctured lungs, internal organ damage, ripped tendons, torn ligaments, snapped necks, and agonizing deaths. These animals did not sign up for this, and they deserve better. Signs will be provided, but feel free to bring your own!
