You are cordially invited to attend

United Poultry Concerns 8th Annual Conference

on the topic of

Cage Free, Animal Friendly, Go Vegan -Whats the Problem?

Saturday, March 29 - Sunday, March 30, 2008

This conference asks: Is there a confliict between working for welfare reforms and urging people to stop viewing animals as edibles and go vegan? Should activists work to reduce the suffering of billions of chickens and other animals who will never live to see a vegan world, or is such work counterproductive - a moral betrayal of animals? And what about terms like "humane meat," "compassionate standards," and "victory"? - What message do they send to the public? We invite you to join the discussion and hear what leaders from within the animal advocacy movement have to say about these issues.

Early Registration: $80. After March 15: $95
