'Power of One' Conference

Just a friendly reminder that the early registration discount for the Oct. 7-9 "Power of One" conference in Raleigh, NC is coming up on Aug. 31. This will be the 20th annual International Compassionate Living Festival, co-sponsored by the Culture and Animals Foundation and the Institute for Animals and Society. This conference complements, not duplicates, other AR conferences, and is a great opportunity for "thinking activists" and "activist thinkers" to get together and discuss a wide range of current AR topics.

The two keynote speakers are Tony Banks, who led the successful fight in the British Parliament to outlaw fox hunting, and John Mackey, the vegan CEO of Whole Foods Market. The other speakers are Ingrid Newkirk, Jill Robinson, Joyce Tischler, Patrick Kwan, Sherry Schlueter, Carol Buckley and Karen and Michael Iacobbo (authors of "Vegetarian America: a history"). Tom Regan and Kim Stallwood will also speak, and HSUS will give a special video presentation during lunch on Saturday.

Registration includes five vegan meals, an exhibit area and bookstore. A limited amount of exhibit space is still available. Scholarships are available for full-time undergrad and grad students. Free childcare will be offered to those who register by Sept. 14. Discount room rates are in effect at the hotel until Sept. 15.

Details and registration forms are available at . Any questions, just ask: I'm the event coordinator. Come check it out!
