Animal Ethics Conference This Week in Utah

Placard from the 2010 Conference

The Animal Ethics Conferenceis this week at Utah Valley University. I’ll have the good fortune of joining some accomplished activists, attorneys, and academics for this event, taking place Thursday, April 5th and Friday, April 6th.

(Rumor is a speaker from HSUS cancelled after being unwilling (either personally or at the direction of his employers) to share a speaking roster with people discussing illegal tactics.)
