The world’s oldest and largest animal rights gathering is next week and we hope you will be joining us! Every year, we organize and host the Animal Rights National Conference with the intention of bringing together folks from across the country and around the world to get educated, get inspired and get active on behalf of animals. And this year is shaping up to be even more exciting with our new outreach touring vehicle making a guest appearance!
From the Southwest to the Midwest to the Northeast, the past few weeks of the 10 Billion Lives Tour have been nothing short of adventurous and intense. Despite the grueling schedule and the perplexing trend of waking up in a new city and state every morning, the heartfelt and life altering conversations that we hold each day with young people across the country on consistently serve as a source of inspiration for our persistence on the road.
Thanks to our Sabina Fund, groups like the Society for Health, Environmental and Rural Development (SHERDP) and the Women’s Organization for Rural Development (WORD), are educating fellow villagers about the importance of environmental awareness, compassion for all living beings and promoting proper health care.
NPR recently posted an article called A Nation of Meat-Eaters: See How It All Adds Up, showing that the US is the second largest meat-eating nation on a per-capita basis. Americans eat nearly 3 times the global average, with our total meat consumption nearly 6 times higher than a century ago.
