Writing for Compassionation

Student Danielle Mills is taking two passionate interests, animals and writing, to create a senior thesis with a national message.

The communication arts student, of Wells, Maine, has created a communications channel about farming and food. The blog is called Compassionation, and its aim is to raise awareness about the business of America’s meat practices--starting with the Gordon community. “I want to engage our campus in a conversation about the food industry,” said Mills, who is in her senior year at Gordon.

Compassionation is an information source for current events, fundraisers, even local vegetarian restaurants. Mills, who is also a vegetarian, uses the site to share her experiences and promote the benefits of a vegetarian/vegan lifestyle.

Mills created Compassionation as her senior thesis project and hopes the channel will continue to engage students further in this important conversation.
