PLNRepression14AR2014 Unites Our Movement and Inspires Action

“Most inspiring weekend of my life!”
“I had high expectations, but this blew me away!”
“Best conference ever.”

Those are just three samples of what we’ve heard from 1,300+ animal activists and other caring people who joined the Animal Rights 2014 National Conference in Los Angeles, CA on July 10-13! This record-shattering number of participants came from forty-five U.S. states and fifteen other countries. They attended for many reasons: to learn about animal exploitation, to receive training in personal growth and organizing, to discuss complex issues, to network with other activists, to "recharge their batteries," and to visit exhibits of new vegan food and fashion products. They certainly returned better equipped to work towards animal liberation.
