San Francisco Bay Area: Unite for the Animals!

San Francisco Bay Area: Unite for the Animals!

Take action. Learn from experts. Make connections. Save lives.

We’re taking over the San Francisco Bay Area for animals! In two weeks’ time, one thousand animal activists will converge in the Bay to take action for animals on a massive scale. Be part of this historic event!


The Animal Liberation Conference is the largest grassroots animal rights conference in North America. It is the best place to learn from experts in open rescue, bearing witness, disruption, and community organizing, meet incredible activists from around the world, take part in high-impact actions and vigils, and empower yourself to be the best activist you can be. Previous attendees have called the conference the best week of their year!

The program includes talks from In Defense of Animals staff including a Carnivores Anonymous session where you can discover our innovative new program which provides vegan support in a 12-step format.

All are welcome, including those new to activism and veganism. You must register to attend.

WHEN: Wednesday, May 23- Tuesday, May 29

WHERE: Various locations around the UC Berkeley campus in Berkeley, CA

On Saturday May 26, 1,000 activists from around the world will unite to speak up and take action for billions of animals who are exploited and killed each year.

All people who support the rights of animals to live are welcome to join. If you want to see every animal live a life that is safe, happy and free, we want you to come stand with us.
