Compassionate Action for Animals says
Compassionate Action for Animals' Volunteer Training Class is a free, day-long workshop that covers how to be an effective advocate for animals, including the basics of animal protection philosophy, information on local and national resources, and an introduction to CAA's approach to speaking up on behalf of farmed animals. This is the same class that we offered in February and June.

This class is free to attend, but registration is required.]

This six hour training is a great opportunity to:

* Meet other activists who care about animals.
* Learn the essentials so you’ll be ready to talk to the public about animal issues.
* Learn about different ways that you can help.
* The training includes a free lunch. We have room for just 15 attendees, so please register today to save a spot.
