Animals Are Important

Sponsored by Vegan Action, the Compassionate Action Conference hopes to broaden awareness for all creatures that share this planet with us and begin building a more compassionate city by exploring the connection between our use of animals, the environment and our health on July 7 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Orchard House School.

      Speakers include Keegan Kuhn, co-director of the documentary films Cowspiracy and What The Health; and Hannah Shaw, aka Kitten Lady. Lunch is available from the Go Go Vegan Go food truck, and participants can visit with a dozen organizations to learn more about important issues affecting the lives of animals.

      Richmond has an array of organizations focused on the welfare of dogs and cats, yet other animals from chickens and primates to pigs and elephants suffer silently for food, science, clothing and entertainment.

Admission is free with registration at Location: 500 N. Allen Ave.
