Annual conference offers animal rights activists a chance to learn, network and speak with lawmakers

Will you take action for animals this summer? An event taking place this summer offers the perfect opportunity to do your part and meet other animal rights activists.

HSUS's Taking Action for Animals -- a four day conference -- will allow you to attend a series of workshops and most importantly, to participate in "Lobby Day" which will enable you to speak with your federal lawmakers and their staff. This is the opportunity to have your say. You can finally let your lawmakers know what’s on your mind, and in person.

From Friday, July 27 through Monday, July 30, the conference will bring together animal activists of all kinds. From those who are new to animal rights and to those that have been fighting all their lives, they will all gather together at the Washington Marriott Wardman Park to connect and make the world a better place for both people and animals.

TAFA will feature workshops and inspirational speakers, but it will also allow you to connect with other advocates. Knowing that there are other people out there that feel the same way you do is vital and allows you to get one step closer in making a difference.

Those who want to participate can choose which days they would like to attend, so if one of the days really catches your eye, sign up! This also means that you can skip anything that isn’t of interest to you. Prices vary depending on the date and the events for that day, so check out the Registration Rates for more information.

For those who don’t live in the DC area, hotel and travel information are provided online, but you can also call 800-228-9290 to book your stay or request more information. Be sure to mention “Humane Society” or reserve online using the code “HSGHSGA.” Rooms for the TAFA are currently at $164/night if booked by July 5. There are a limited number of rooms available, so act fast.

View the schedule for this year’s conference and please sign up.
