Tribe of Heart

Upcoming Events

The gatherings listed below represent the best of grassroots advocacy and are proof positive that an exciting new justice movement for animals is on the way.

In recent years, a once-vibrant animal advocacy movement has been taken over by corporate organizations, which have brought with them a demoralizing wave of hierarchical control, double-speak, and back room deals with industry. But change is coming!

Coalitions guided by principles, not personalities, are now forming and bringing back the idealism and spirit that once characterized animal advocacy and fueled our work together.

Tribe of Heart and our colleagues are happy to be participating in each of the events below, and we encourage you to join us at one or more of them if you can!


May 31st - June 2nd
Alexandria, Virginia

Featuring screenings of The Witness and Peaceable Kingdom: The Journey Home.

Plus, presentations by film subject Eddie Lama and Tribe of Heart's international outreach coordinator, Trevor DeSane.

The Anti-Fur Society Conference offers a special focus on issues concerning fur-bearing animals, particularly the exploitation and cruelty of fur farms, wool and leather production, "harvesting" of wildlife (hunting, trapping, penning, etc). It will also explore other areas of animal exploitation including vivisection, puppy mills, animals in entertainment, horse slaughter, animals for food, and issues related to the environment, which directly affects all living beings on our planet.

Registration ends May 15th
