Stop Animal Exploitation NOW!
S. A. E. N.
"Exposing the truth to wipe out animal experimentation"

The Defender
Vol. 4, No. 2 - Spring 2006

Outreach 2006

During 2006 Stop Animal Exploitation NOW! staff will take part in several major conferences that will inform, educate, and train activists within the animal rights movement.

SAEN’s Executive Director, Michael Budkie will be addressing the 2006 International Primate Protection League (IPPL) membership conference on the current status of primate experimentation in the U.S. The conference takes place on March 24th – 26th at the serene IPPL sanctuary in Summerville, SC.

We would like to take this opportunity to publicly thank IPPL for their financial support during the last three years. IPPL’s grants to SAEN have been crucial in our work opposing primate experimentation by allowing SAEN staff to obtain essential documents and to travel to key cities for vital media events which are making a real difference for the thousands of primates imprisoned in U.S. labs. Dr. Shirley McGreal, IPPL’s founder, has always been extremely supportive of SAEN’s efforts by providing direction in obtaining information and performing investigations.

The Vegetarian Summerfest takes place in Johnstown, PA from July 5th – 9th. This conference brings together hundreds of people who are interested in vegetarianism for five days of workshops on health, cooking, and animal & environmental issues.

The Animal Rights 2006 (AR2006) conference is in Washington, DC and runs from August 10th -14th. SAEN staff will help to present workshops and panels at this conference. Previous workshops in which we have participated include:

  • Abuse of Animals in Laboratories (an introduction to the issue using videos),
  • Effective Research (how to investigate animal abuse issues),
  • Abusing Our Cousins (non-human primate issues),
  • Research Campaigns (reports on anti-animal research projects),
  • Effective Tactics for Research Campaigns (how to fight animal experimentation), and
  • Animal Welfare Act (current issues involving enforcement of the AWA).

Our goal in attending all of these conferences is to further educate activists across the U.S. about the criminal abuse that is an integral part of every animal experiment and empower them to effectively target and expose animal laboratories in their areas. Additionally, these conferences allow us to network with activists to promote wider participation in SAEN campaigns.

We encourage you to take the opportunity to participate in these conferences. If you plan to attend any of these events, check out our presentation to get the latest updates on all of our campaigns and investigative techniques. Also, please stop by the Stop Animal Exploitation NOW! table and say hello as we enjoy meeting as many of our supporters as possible.
