      The Foundations of a Movement 2005:
      An Animal Rights Conference

      Join Friends of Animals, during the weekend of 9-10 July in New York
      City, where we'll get together to enjoy a Raw Food Demonstration
      from local New York chefs, and also get down to business addressing
      some of the most pressing matters in animal advocacy. We'll bring
      the dairy business into focus; we'll be talking about desperation
      and intimidation in animal advocacy, and getting beyond them. We'll
      discuss the questions arising in animal advocacy since the rise of
      anti-terror legislation. We'll introduce a new vegan cookbook,
      Dining with Friends. We'll be talking with lawyers, authors, and
      advocates for progressive ideas.
