Cleveland Animal Rights Alliance is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit tax-exempt organization. We are 100% volunteer-run. We work to create a culture where every animal, both human and non-human, exists free from oppression, human use and exploitation.

CARA advocates a compassionate vegan ethic through a variety of community outreach events throughout the year. We regularly host film screenings and free vegan dinners and presentations with nationally-known speakers. Our events cover a range of topics that address human health & nutrition, environmental sustainability and ethics & philosophy as it pertains to our relationship with other animals. We also staff information booths at many Cleveland-area festivals, leaflet with vegan literature at concerts & colleges, and hold vegan "feed-ins" to expose the public to delicous cruelty-free food options.

Our goal is to create a world of peace, abundance and environmental sustainability as our daily choices become aligned with the principle of nonviolence towards all creatures.
