This year's exciting program includes the following sessions and many more:

Tapping Into Our Compassion - Melanie Joy and Colleen Patrick-Goudreau will address paths and roadblocks to compassionate living.

Confronting Challenges to Animal Activism - Vandhana Bala, Will Potter, and Ryan Shapiro will address repression of social activism by government and corporate interests.

Tales from the Trenches - Taylor Radig, Simone Reyes, and TJ Tumasse will reveal their personal accounts as undercover investigators and on-the-ground animal activists.

New Directions for Animal Advocacy - Nick Cooney and Wayne Hsiung discuss how to use lessons from social science to build a more strategic movement.

Take a look at our outstanding line-up of more than 115 speakers (the most ever!).

But AR2014 is not just about sessions and speakers -- we've also got an exhibit hall full of amazing vegan vendors, must-see film premieres, and tons of networking opportunities culminating with our Sunday evening closing celebration.
