The Peaceable Kingdom Conference Launch Conference on Saturday, May 20, 2017, 8:30am-3pm, is the first annual

conference whose goals are to: respect animals’ emotions and intelligence; increase our reliance

on plant-based foods; be kind to Earth, its inhabitants, and ourselves; and, strengthen the human-

animal bond. There is a $20 per person registration fee; and pre-registration is required due to

limited seating.

The featured speakers and exhibitors are prominent Pennsylvanian community leaders in animal

welfare, agriculture, rescue, science, spirituality, and social justice. The Peaceable Kingdom

workshops emphasize the conference goals, invite participants to examine their personal

relationship with animals, and encourage participants to be open to adopting plant-based eating

in small ways.
