Last spring, Cease Animal Torture (CAT) launched their first ever Animal Liberation Forum in April 2009 at California State University Long Beach. CAT's Forum was the first conference concerning animal rights in all of CSULB's 60 year history. Earthlings Director Shaun Monson, Stewart Soloman from Vegan Outreach, Greg Kelly co-founder of Win Animal Rights (WAR), Nik Hensey from No Compromise, and Dr. Jerry Vlasak MD were some of the amazing speakers that participated. Several animal rights organizations including veganTHIS, Orange County People for Animals (OCPA) and North American Animal Liberation Press Office (NAALPO) tabled the event as well.
