Welcome to Compassionate Living!

Compassionate Living is a 501c3 non-profit organization working to end farmed animal suffering and encourage a healthy vegan lifestyle to help our community thrive.  We support ethical and eco-friendly living in the Bay Area and beyond by highlighting the abundance of plant-based options that heal our bodies, our planet, and our relationship to animals.

To support those that are curious about a more compassionate lifestyle, we host inspiring and knowledgable speakers, veggie cooking demos, community events, and more. Join our North Bay Vegan Meetup and sign up for our eNews to keep up to date on our activities and events and learn how you can get involved. All are welcome, vegans, vegetarians and the veg-curious. Check out our North Bay Restaurant Guide to find vegetarian and veg-friendly restaurants in your city and be sure to “like” us on FaceBook and follow our page for updated information and events.

Outreach Team

Compassionate Living’s Outreach Team educates our community about the suffering of farmed animals and the benefits of a healthy plant-based diet through video outreach, leafleting, tabling and more. If you are interested in being on our Outreach Team, e-mail Hope. We are a caring and compassionate community ready to create a peaceful world for all sentient beings. Won’t you join us?

The voiceless farmed animals need us to speak out for them and to boycott the cruel industry of animal agriculture. Please live vegan.
