Newtown Conference Encourages Peace Among Living Creatures
Everyone of all ages, vegans and non-vegans alike, are welcome to attend the second annual Peaceable Kingdom Conference, held from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., on May 12, at Bucks County Community College’s Rollins Center Gallagher Room, in Newtown.
The Peaceable Kingdom Conference goals are to respect animals' emotions and intelligence; to increase our reliance on plant-based foods; to be kind to Earth, its inhabitants and ourselves; and to strengthen the human-animal bond.
The featured speakers and exhibitors are prominent Pennsylvanian community leaders in animal welfare, agriculture, rescue, science, spirituality and social justice. 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.
Learn how to create a humane backyard, active steps to take to adopt a plant-based diet, how to purchase humane products, and how to support companion and farm animal rescues.
Cost: $30 ($20/students) includes vegan lunch catered by CulinArt and donation to the American Anti-Vivisection Society. Location: 275 Swamp Rd., Newtown. Limited seating; pre-registration required.
