Animal Rights 2003 East Coast Conference
By Greg Lawson - [email protected] 

I recently returned from the annual conference Animal Rights 2003 hosted by the Farm Animal Reform Movement in Washington, DC. I hope that all who read this article will either immediately make their reservations for AR2003 West in Los Angeles, August 1 through August 6, or that you will start saving for AR2004.

This yearly event is not only an incredible learning experience, it's a time for activists to gain fresh motivation and make connections with others in the movement. I got together with several old friends and made several new ones. It was incredible to be surrounded by hundreds of vegan animal rights activists for a week, so many people were so very excited to be participating.

Despite the pain that most of us deal with daily in our work to stop animal suffering, this was a time for us to come together and celebrate, to learn new ways to advance our work, to network and to eat. Every day, the restaurant in the McLean, Virginia, Hilton (the site of AR2003 East) served the most delicious all you could eat vegan buffets for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Alex Hershaft and his staff at FARM do a wonderful job of organizing this annual conference and I very much look forward to Animal Rights 2003 West in August. Hope to meet you there.
