PETA's Helping Animals 101 Conference Is Coming!

Here at PETA, we hear daily from people who feel saddened by animal abuse but helpless to do anything about it. I felt like that for years. And that's why we created our Helping Animals 101 conferences.

Please join us for a weekend in 2005. We want to share with you what we've learned over 25 years of activism.

HA101 takes place over two full days:
-Workshops and talks given by some of our best PETA staffers
-Information on everything from helping your neighbor's dog to writing a letter that really matters
-Videos, PETA merchandise, literature, posters, and a goodie bag stuffed with cruelty-free products
-Fabulous meals
-The chance to meet and get to know both PETA staffers, who can help you in the future, and like-minded folks from your local area.

You may want to change your local animal shelter. Or perhaps you're ready to do some demos, but you don't know how to get the media to show up. Maybe you're just sick of feeling helpless and hopeless—we've all been there. Whether you have 40 hours a week to help animals or just 40 minutes: You CAN make a difference, and you'll feel better each day because of it.

I've been hearing from you for months now, asking for more conferences in 2005. Thanks for contacting me... you got it!

Here's our 2005 schedule:

San Francisco, California: February 5-6
Washington, D.C.: March 5-6

All Conferences in 2005
If you're a starving student, we want to help you attend! Students of any age pay only $35 at all conferences.

Please set aside two days next year to change your life. I know from experience when I attended the first HA101 back in 2003, I owned a restaurant, and while I was doing my best to help animals, I didn't feel very effective. After two days with the amazing PETA staff, I flew back home and immediately changed my daily life. I started to feel like I was really making a difference, and that's a great feeling! Now here I am, working full-time for PETA and happier than I've ever been (if you want to know what it's like to work for Ingrid Newkirk, just pull me aside during a conference break). You may not want to sell your business like I did, but I do hope you'll join us for a weekend so you  can get a good dose of inspiration and motivation. You won't regret it!

See you next year,

Alex Bury
Helping Animals 101 Coordinator
