In the spring of 2009, Cease Animal Torture launched their first ever Animal Liberation Forum at California State University Long Beach. The forum, which took place in April 2009, was the first conference concerning animal rights in all of CSULB’s 60 year history.
At the beginning of this year, Cease Animal Torture successfully held their second annual Animal Liberation Forum and continued the tradition of featuring speakers and organizations from all over the country. In its two year run, the Animal Liberation Forum has had the privilege of guest speakers such as Press Officer Dr. Jerry Vlasak MD, Co-founder of Feminists for Animal Rights (FAR) and Author Marti Kheel, Stewart Soloman member of Vegan Outreach, Lorri Houston founder of Animal Acres, and Greg Kelly international activist and co-founder of Band of Mercy. In addition to having a wide array of informative speakers, organizations such as veganTHIS, Animal Rescue Media Education (ARME), Orange County People for Animals (OCPA), North American Animal Liberation Press Office (NAALPO), Eko Zone, and Band of Mercy – Los Angeles have participated.
