Did you know that in addition to the Twin Cities Veg Fest, we’re also hosting an animal advocacy conference, Their Lives, Our Voices, the day after the festival? On Sunday, October 27, Their Lives, Our Voices will bring together activists and the activism-curious with a great group of knowledgeable and empowering speakers.

The conference will feature two tracks of great speakers including nationally recognized leaders in the animal advocacy movement, including Nathan Runkle from Mercy for Animals and Nick Cooney from Farm Sanctuary. We also have a great lineup of locals including speakers from Compassionate Action for Animals, Minnesota Voters for Animal Protection, and experienced organizers from the Sierra Club, along with many others.
