    The Animal Rights Coalition is rebooting its Forego Foie Gras campaign, and we would like YOU to become a volunteer for it.

  • Protest Four Paws and a Tail

    Northtown Mall

    We're joining 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/

  • Protest Ribnick Furs

    Ribnick Fur and Leather

    Join us for a peaceful protest to educate the public about why fur has no place in 2019. Animals shouldn't be forced to live in tiny cages, only to meet their death by anal electrocution, gassing, and/or drowning. Signs and literature will be provided, but please feel free to bring your own as well!

  • Becoming Your Best Voice for Animals

    Penn Lake Library

    Come and check out this Animal Rights Coalition sponsored, interactive, thought-provoking conversation about moving towards being your best voice for the animals, hosted by AmyLeo Barankovich, of Vegan Affairs Minnesota at the Penn Lake Library Community Room. It seems to be human nature to speak “wildly” when our emotions lead the conversation. Being an effective animal advocate requires putting into practice a set of tools that we can access once we are aware of them and know how to best use them. AmyLeo is trained in several communication modalities (Non-Violent Communication, The Art of Convening, and the Alternative to Violence Project) which has helped her respectfully communicate animal issues in all areas of her life, including her work as a vegan cooking instructor and coach.
