The Animal Rights National Conference is the U.S. animal rights movement’s annual national conference dedicated to the vision that animals have the right to live free from human exploitation. It is the world’s largest and longest-running animal rights gathering, hailing back to 1981.
At this time, we expect the Animal Rights 2020 National Conference to take place as scheduled on July 16–19 in Portland, OR. Please view our health and safety page for details.
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.
#AR2020 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.
