EVENT INFORMATION
The Peaceable Kingdom Conference Goals:
1. Respect animals' emotions and intelligence
2. Increase our reliance on plant-based foods
3. Be kind to Earth, its inhabitants, and ourselves
4. Strengthen the human-animal bond

The featured speakers and exhibitors are prominent community leaders in animal welfare, agriculture, animal rescue, science, spirituality, and humane education.  The Peaceable Kingdom workshops emphasize the conference goals, invite participants to examine their personal relationship with animals, and encourage participants to be open to adopting plant-based eating in small ways.  Conference exhibitors, also focused on the conference goals, share information with participants on active steps to take to adopt a plant-based diet, how to purchase humane products, and how to support companion and farm animal rescues.  

Everyone in the general public of all ages, vegans and non-vegans alike, are welcome to attend.  

Pre-registration is required due to limited seating.  Register today!
