The company’s goal is to offer resources through its website, various videos, events, and a print magazine for people, businesses, and non-profit organizations with a mission to move the world forward.
In 2010, Washington, DC became the second city in the nation, after San Francisco, to pass a “Meat-Free Monday” resolution encouraging residents to choose healthier and more sustainable foods at least one day each week.

In the past year, Compassion Over Killing has developed a relationship with Miriam’s Kitchen — at least once a month, our staff, interns, and volunteers support this meatless initiative by helping prepare and serve heart-healthy, animal-friendly meals.
