Taking Action For Animals Conference

The Taking Action for Animals conference will be held July 16-18, at the Renaissance Washington Hotel in Washington, DC. 

Please join Animal Protection Institute, the Doris Day Animal League, Farm Sanctuary, HSUS, PETA, and others to network with national leaders and grassroots activists as we celebrate recent victories and outline a vision for the future of animal protection; learn skills in lobbying, fundraising, media relations, investigations, humane education, developing successful campaigns, and much more with in-depth training workshops; and participate in hands-on activities such as lobbying on Capitol Hill, protesting animal cruelty, and educating the public. All in a convenient downtown location close to restaurants, shops, monuments, and public transportation.

Share experiences, celebrate successes, address current challenges and learn how to:

* Influence the political process
* Gain lasting legal protection for animals
* Get the message across by working with the media and the corporate sector
* Run dynamic and powerful awareness raising campaigns
* Build a strong movement using leading edge techniques in fund development, market research, grassroots organization and web advocacy
* Use a range of approaches to help animals from investigations and sanctuary management to effective protests and humane education.

Outside of formal sessions, opportunities will be provided for networking, planning activity and learning from others in the movement. Day Three will offer the chance to take part in activities to help animals at a Lobby Day on Capitol Hill or an organized protest. Come and be part of this unique and exciting event and build our movement to make a real and lasting difference for animals into the future.
