Statement About AR2021

Eric C Lindstrom, Executive Director, Farm Animal Rights Movement

After deep consideration and listening to other perspectives from our supporters, I’ve come to the decision to cancel the virtual Animal Rights 2021 National Conference in favor of a Fall 2021 40th Anniversary Celebration*. Cancelling was a difficult decision for me as the conference has had such an impact on my own ethical vegan journey and has inspired tens of thousands of attendees since 1981. 

Thank you to all our allies in the fight for animal justice. There will be more events in FARM’s future, and I look forward to your support in continuing to build a coalition of vegan and animal rights activists. I would also like to thank those of you who have already written me with your kind words.

Please do not hesitate to reach out to me directly should you have any questions or want to discuss ideas for strengthening our growing movement while standing up for animals. 

With sincere gratitude,

Eric C Lindstrom, Executive Director
