Animal Liberation Forum 2011 is a FREE 4 day conference in Long Beach, CA calling for a total abolitionist movement and animal liberation to action. Topics ranging from animal liberation, interconnections of oppressions, direct action and veganism will be discussed and strategized through speakers, panels, workshops and film screenings.

In the spring of 2009, Cease Animal Torture launched their first ever Animal Liberation Forum at California State University Long Beach. The forum 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 LiberationForum 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.
