Toronto is getting its first-ever animal liberation conference
The conference will provide activists with keynote speeches and panel discussions, hands-on workshops, training for nonviolent direct action and more — all "to empower attendees of the conference to understand animal rights as a core issue that connects to other social justice imperatives," according to a press release.
Regular registration for the four-day conference costs $60, but attendees can choose to pay $120 and help subsidize the cost for someone else's registration. There is also a low income option for $40.
Speakers will include Anita Krajnc, founder of Toronto Pig Save and prominent local animal rights activist, Roger Hallam, co-founder of Extinction Rebellion and leader of the worldwide climate rebellion movement, Jo-Anne McArthur, award-winning photojournalist and founder of We Animals Media and more.

“Education and community building are core elements of a powerful, grassroots movement," says Johanna Nikoletos, of Liberation TO.
"Through this conference and our other initiatives, we aim to provide concerned members of the public with the resources they need to take action and become community leaders.”
The conference runs from August 16 to 19 at various locations across the city.
