Students for Compassionate Living

Students for Compassionate Living seeks to educate the Calvin community about the practical implications of its daily choices for non-humans animals, and provide support for those who strive to redeem fallen structures as they explore issues of animal welfare. Through on-campus educational workshops, films, dinners, and weekly meetings, we hope to raise awareness of the current ways in which people use animals, and advocate on behalf of animals in the broader community. We believe that such exercises in self-examination and advocacy will help participants to live as intentional Christians individually, as well as develop our Christian community through compassionate and responsible living.
