2015 National Animal Rights Conference

From July 31st to August 2nd we attended and had a table at the 2015 National Animal Rights Conference in Alexandria, VA hosted by Farm Animal Rights Movement. We thank all who came out to see us and listen to our mission and learn about our residents. It was humbling to be the rookie on the largest stage in the Animal Rights world. We were among some global giants such as Sea Shepherd Conservation Society, Stop Animal Exploitation Now, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, Mercy For Animals, Jewish Vegetarians of North America, Compassion Over Killing, Animal Equality and Direct Action Everywhere. In addition to bringing awareness to our sanctuary we were passing out literature and selling merchandise on behalf of Christian Vegetarian Association. Everyone we spoke with was very receptive to the message of compassion we expressed and thanked us for putting our faith into action in the stewardship of a sanctuary. Many attendees expressed and interest in visiting so we encouraged them to contact us to make an appointment and follow us on Facebook to be notified of events. We attended many lectures to further our mission and ate some delicious vegan food! We had such a wonderful time and look forward to seeing many of you soon, and some of you in two years when the conference is back in the Washington DC area!
