How many times have you sat around the house thinking, ” Gosh – I ‘d like to do more, but I really just don’t know how to take it to the next level?” Well good news — I’m about to open your peepers!

From July 24-27th, the best of the best will be heading to Arlington, VA to attend the Taking Action for Animals Conference —  the largest national conference for the animal protection movement.

According to their site, you’ll have the chance to “join advocates from around the globe to brush up on the basics, learn about the latest cutting-edge campaigns, and attend dynamic workshops that will help you improve your work for animals.”

And of course no badass event would be complete without a little celebrity action. Well-known folks in attendance include: Carol Leifer, Ginnifer Goodwin, Rep John Conyers, Rep Jim Moran and a special performance by Nellie McKay. We’ve featured Nellie before and give her the ultimate two thumbs up. We’ve never chilled with Ginnifer, but we’re excited to finally meet her (especially after titling her one our Top 5 Vegans of 2009)!

I’ll be there representing both Ecorazzi and VEGdaily as I blog live, update our twitter like crazy and make some cool ass videos! So what are you waiting for? Visit TakingActionForAnimals.org and come play!

Prisons profit from exploiting life and labour

Most young workers don’t want anything to do with manual labour jobs in meat and dairy, and as a result, a large majority of agricultural workers are marginalized people

If you’re mourning Sudan the rhino, go vegan

The world needs more vegans because more than dollars or pledges or sad-emoji riddled posts, our individual efforts can stop the demand for horns, for zoos, for animal flesh, and for the exploitation of any living being.

Criticize veganism, but don’t discredit it

Oppressive and harmful behaviour has no place in a movement rooted in anti-oppression.
