United Poultry Concerns’ 6th Annual Conscious Eating Conference brings expert speakers to Berkeley, California to share their ideas about the best food choices we can make for the planet, ourselves, and other animals. This year, we have some of the legends and heroes of our movement speaking like Carol Adams, Will Tuttle, and Lisa Kemmerer.
We are dedicating a section of the conference this year to the question, How Does Religion Help or Hinder Animal Liberation? According to Pew research, 84% of the world population, and 78% of the U.S. population, consider themselves religious or have a religious identity. Many animal activists believe that spiritual communities are a “low-hanging fruit” for vegan advocacy, but are they? What do various religions say about our relationship to animals and the natural world? We will explore these questions through speakers representing Christianity, Judaism, Hinduism, Buddhism, and Atheism.
Registration is free for students with ID and only $15 for others pre-registration, $25 at the door, so register today! Includes breakfast pastries and fruit and a delicious vegan lunch.
