We’re busy as bees here at the Museum! As you know we just got back from the HSUS’ Taking Action for Animals in Washington, D.C. This weekend we’re very excited to be participating in the 2011 Animal Rights National Conference (ARC) right here in Los Angeles, CA, at the Westin LAX Hotel. A program of Farm Animal Rights Movement, ARC is the largest and oldest animal rights gathering in the world, celebrating its 30th anniversary this year! With more than 100 speakers from 60 different organizations and 90 exhibits FREE and open to the public, ARC 2011 is sure to be an exciting and enlightening event for anyone interested in animals or their welfare.
ARC started yesterday, and you’ll find us in the exhibit hall starting today. Friday, Saturday and Sunday, NMAS staff and volunteers will be on hand to promote the Museum’s mission, as well as showcase our gorgeous new merchandise! In addition to our exhibit, NMAS Founder and President Carolyn Merino Mullin will be a presenter on two panels on Sunday morning. At the 10:30 panel on Running a Local Group, Carolyn will speak on recruiting and engaging interns, as well as the mutual benefits internships can create. Then at 11:30, Carolyn will speak on Commonality of Oppression, discussing the history of America’s animal protection movement and how it has coincided with other social movements to correct systemic inequalities.
We’d be so happy to have you stop by our table at ARC this weekend and say hello. With so much to do and see, and free admission to the exhibit hall (not to mention FREE vegan snacks!), ARC is guaranteed to be an enriching, educational, and enjoyable experience for all its attendees and participants.
