AR Conference--NYC, July 9-10
- 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.
