The Animal Rights National Conference is the U.S. animal rights movement's annual national conference. It is also the world's largest and longest-running animal rights gathering, hailing back to 1981. Each year, the conference features approximately 150 speakers from dozens of organizations across the world, representing different experiences and paths to animal liberation.

A number of today's movement leaders can trace their start to one of our conferences. If you have information, skills, or a successful campaign to share with our participants, we encourage you to submit a speaking proposal.
