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.
