  • Vegan Diet or Lifestyle? Which Makes Sense? With the advent of the bestselling book Skinny Bitch, veganism came way out of the closet and exploded into the mainstream consciousness. Veganism is now a household word. But is it really true that one can become thin by adopting a vegan diet? Diets don't seem to work. Counting calories works for a while but who can stay on a 1,000 calorie a day diet forever? I have interviewed people who've switched from a meat-based diet to a vegetarianism or veganism. I will present my findings,<br /> review our misconceptions about diet, and discuss how changing lifestyle is the answer.<br /> <br /> Jacquie Lewis: President, SPEAK

  • Most Good, Least Harm: Uncovering the Hidden Connections Bet We all know the obvious ways in which our choices affect animals (e.g. food choices), but we may be less aware of<br /> the countless decisions we make that have an impact on other species, such as the electronics and T-shirts we purchase. In this workshop we’ll look at the true price of everyday things and explore the steps we can take to minimize the harm we cause and change the systems that perpetuate destruction and suffering.<br /> <br /> Zoe Weil is the co-founder and president of the Institute for Humane Education (IHE). She has been a humane educator for over 25 years and is considered a pioneer in the comprehensive humane education movement which seeks to educate a generation to be conscientious choicemakers and engaged changemakers for a peaceful, sustainable and<br /> humane world.

  • Finding and Keeping Nemo - A Better Fish Story For many people it is hard to feel all warm and cozy about fish. We can't pet them, hold them, or nuzzle them.<br /> As vegans we have compassion for them, but it is also good to be armed with the facts. Humans are raping the seas and the future of the world's oceans looks extremely bleak. Lakes and streams are polluted, which effects fish populations and those who eat them. Now, when fish numbers are dwindling people find ways to factory farm them. New research indicates that fish feel pain, are intelligent, and even have personalities. The atrocities that are committed against fish are extremely cruel, the environmental devastation is severe, and the threat to human health is a blatant reality. This presentation will address these vital issues about animals that are often overlooked. <br /> <br /> Jacquie Lewis: President, SPEAK

  • The Influential Activist: The Science of Opening Minds and Win Do graphic images help or hurt us in persuading people to adopt more animal-friendly behaviors like going vegetarian or boycotting fur? Which approach will create more change: an 'abolitionist' message (promoting only veganism), or a more varied approach that sometimes urges incremental changes? Why do most Americans oppose factory farming yet eat factory farm products?<br /> How can we get members of the public to do what we want: go vegan, volunteer, donate money, etc.? And how can we as animal activists do the most good for animals?<br /> <br /> Nick Cooney: Founder and Director, Humane League of Philadelphia
