If you get our email alerts, yesterday you may have received a message sent on our behalf from Nigel Barker, world-renowned photographer and devoted animal advocate and HSUS spokesman, about the upcoming Taking Action for Animals. The largest national conference for the animal advocacy movement, TAFA is now in its sixth year—we’ll gather July 23-26 in the heart of Washington, D.C. at the Washington Marriott Wardman Park Hotel, just steps from the Metro. If you register by tomorrow—Wednesday, June 23—you can save $25 on full conference registration.
Nigel Barker and Hal Sparks
Nigel will be speaking at TAFA this year, along with dozens of other extraordinary people at more than 20 workshops on a wide range of topics. Comedian Hal Sparks will perform at the banquet dinner. And new this year we’ve added a Student Summit, an affordable daylong session for teens and college advocates.
Whether you’re newly interested or a veteran of animal advocacy, this is one of the best opportunities for you to meet hundreds of other advocates who share your vision of a better world for animals, learn how to be the most effective advocate, and understand the political process and visit Capitol Hill.
Don’t be a bystander. Dive in to a cause that is preventing cruelty and mitigating suffering. I hope you will consider attending and, if you’ve already registered, we can’t wait to see you there.
