Count Down to #AR2019



The Animal Rights National Conference is the U.S. animal rights movement’s annual national conference. It is the world’s largest and longest-running animal rights gathering, hailing back to 1981. This year's event will take place July 25-28, 2019 at the Hilton Alexandria Mark Center just outside Washington, DC.

With 100 presenters from more than 60 organizations across the movement, the conference offers a variety of educational and networking opportunities including activist support workshops, group discussions, 100+ exhibits (free to visitors), film screenings, and so much more. Our multilayered program informs and inspires newcomers, trains and empowers activists, and strengthens the animal rights movement to advance our shared mission of creating a world free of animal exploitation.

#AR2019 strives to be a safe space, inclusive and accessible to all. In an effort to minimize financial barriers, we offer registration discounts, working opportunities, and full or partial scholarships. For those who can afford more, we invite you to join us as an individual sponsor and/or make a donation toward our scholarship fund.
