Teaching Compassion

Teaching Compassion, our outreach program to schools, universities, and churches, provides free presentations on a variety of animal-related topics such as our treatment of and relationship to animals, speciesism, sustainability, environmental destruction, and food justice.

We give presentations to classrooms, assemblies, student groups, and gifted and talented programs.

Examples of locations include social justice classes at St. Catherine’s University, Normandale Community College classes and school-wide forums, St. Cloud State University, DeLaSalle High School, Fridley Middle School, Maxfield Elementary School, Southwest High School, Washburn High School, Parkway United Church of Christ, and Walker Church.

We have developed a nationally recognized brochure about speciesism, “Have You Ever Stopped to Think About Them?” the first-ever designed for those with lower literacy rates, thus making our message even more accessible to more people.
