Arm Yourself with the Facts: Attend the NAIA 2012 Annual Conference!
The National Animal Interest Alliance is thrilled to announce its 2012 annual conference, taking place November 10-11, in Redondo Beach, California.
This year’s conference focuses on the myths, lies, and stereotypes that cloud the public's understanding of animal issues, and how they are perpetuated by activist and industry marketing campaigns, by media, and even the scientific community.
We will desconstruct these myths and their unintended (or intended) consequences, detailing the ways in which they damage the human-animal bond, the well-being of our pets and livestock, and even human health. Most importantly, we will be focusing on proactive solutions that effectively counter misconceptions and propaganda.
Featuring presentations from world-renowned animal welfare authorities such as Temple Grandin, award-winning science writer Gary Taubes, agricultural journalist Andy Vance of Feedstuffs, and numerous world-class experts on legal and legislative issues, this conference is the can’t-miss animal event of 2012!
Some of the topics that will be covered:
The difference between animal rights and animal welfare
The language that shapes debate: 4 legs good, 2 legs bad
Challenges facing U.S. agriculture
The health and welfare of purebred dogs
An overview of the animal law movement in America: from property rights to guardianship
And much, much more!
In today’s climate of sophisticated marketing techniques and propaganda, it is not enough to simply know the facts. You need to be able to articulate them, and fight for them when necessary. The welfare of animals and your rights as an animal owner depend on it.
