The Animal Rights 2014 National Conference is just over a month away and we can't wait to see you there!

This year's event is gearing up to be the biggest and best yet -- you're in store for an unforgettable and inspiring experience. We've got an outstanding line-up of speakers, amazing sponsors and exhibitors, exciting film premieres, fun networking events, delicious vegan goodies, and so much more.

We'd also like to check in with you about a few quick things:

Have you booked your hotel room and flight?

Our $95/night room block at the Westin LAX Hotel has been filled. But don't worry -- we've made alternate arrangements! We've negotiated a discounted room block at the LaQuinta Inn & Suites across the street at $90/night.

However, if you prefer to stay at the Westin LAX Hotel, you may book at $144/night. Visit our lodging page for more information on booking your room.

If you haven't yet booked your flight, please read this important notice on our travel page.

You can also check out the AR2014 message boards for room shares, carpooling, and general discussions to connect with fellow attendees ahead of time.

Join the pre- and post-conference events!

We encourage you to come on Wednesday, July 9th to participate in the largest Ringling Bros Circus protest in U.S. history! Stick around after the conference and take your pick of lobbying or attending an anti-vivisection protest on Monday, July 14th.

Help spread the word!

Help us recruit more voices to speak out for animals! Spread the word by inviting your friends on Facebook and sharing these images (click on the thumbnails):

Also, feel free to encourage your friends to register or invite them to visit our free exhibit hall and attend one free daytime session.

Lastly, we'd like to remind you of AR2014's safe space policy, which all participants must respect.
