AR2003 Conferences SAEN leads the fight against vivisection

Every year activists from across the United States gather for a national animal rights conference, AR2003. This year, for the first time, two conferences will take place. The first one will be held in Washington D.C. from June 27th - July 2nd. A second national conference will be held in Los Angeles from August 1st – 6th.

At each conference hundreds of people will come together to be updated on vital campaigns, learn about crucial issues, and receive training from movement professionals. More information on the conferences can be obtained from the conference website: www.animalrights2003.org.

We strongly urge you to be a part of this year’s conferences. SAEN will be participating in both conferences to help educate and instruct activists from all parts of the world about animal experimentation and how to fight it.

Michael A. Budkie, Executive Director of SAEN, will be presenting parts of seven different workshops at the AR2003 East conference. An activist with seventeen years of movement experience, Mr. Budkie has expertise in dealing with the media, investigating research laboratories, and campaign coordination.

Mr. Budkie will participate in the following workshops: Researching on the Internet (teaches activists use of internet resources for various investigations), Research Campaigns I (a campaign update covering projects like the Procter & Gamble Boycott, World Laboratory Animal Liberation Week, etc.), Abusing Our Cousins (exposes the various abuses perpetrated on non-human primates), Running Effective Events (discusses the organizing of events from media to objectives), New Comer Orientation (introduces new activists to a broad spectrum of issues including vivisection), Effective Tactics for Research (discusses methods used for attacking the animal experimentation issue), and Research Projects (a planning session designed to help assemble actual projects). Mr. Budkie will also address the conference during the general session titled: "Challenge of Animal Rights". This talk will emphasize ways that activists can make a real difference for animals.

SAEN will also have a literature table at both conferences. Fact sheets, petitions, and other resources will be available at the table. If you are attending the conferences, please stop by to say hello!
