The Symposium of Animal Liberation is a conference intended to unite, inspire, and motivate activists and anyone new to the animal rights movement or interested in learning more about it. This is the very first Symposium and it will consist of workshops addressing different animal abuse and exploitation industries, effective forms of activism, vegan and activist lifestyles, and more! You’ll hear presentations from experienced activists, network and meet other people who share your views, and have the opportunity to visit the exhibit hall.
The idea for the Symposium stemmed from the notion of advancing the positive, powerful effects FARM’s Animal Rights National Conference produces. Individuals are motivated to get active, provided with knowledge, form friendships, and those who do not yet follow a compassionate lifestyle are inspired to take the leap. The majority of animal rights conferences and veg-fests, however, are usually on either the East coast or the West coast. So why not have one farther inland to spread the inspiration to impel change to those who might not otherwise be able to take part in such a powerful experience? Anyone is enthusiastically welcomed — encouraged — to attend: the Symposium is not limited to Arizona residents.
