Animal Rights 2001 Early Registration Deadline

from FARM - [email protected] 

Greetings from Animal Rights 2001, the historic first national conference of the new millennium to be held June 30 - July 5 in the nation's capital.

We would like to remind all our friends and fellow activists that the early ($100) registration closes on February 15 (postmark). After that date, the fee goes up to $120. If you have any interest in attending, registering now provides cheap insurance, because you can cancel for a $25 fee until June 25, when registration fee will be $160. A few work scholarships are still available.

You can register on-line or by phone (with a credit card), or by mailing a completed registration form with your payment. For additional details, please visit

or send an e-mail to [email protected]
