“Do Unto Others: A Conference on Animals and Religion”

Do Unto Others“: A Conference on Animals and Religion” is Southern California’s first interreligious conference focused on animals and religion. The purpose of the conference is to promote greater kindness and compassion toward animals by engaging with a variety of religious, ethical, and spiritual perspectives that extend compassion beyond the human species and empower faithful action.

The conference features two keynote speakers: Jay McDaniel, prominent eco-theologian and writer, will open the conference with “You Purr Therefore I am: The Role of Animals in Human Spirituality,” and Karen Dawn, author of the popular book Thanking the Monkey: Rethinking the Way We Treat Animals, will provide the closing address at the upbeat vegan banquet. The program also includes workshops and panels, an interreligious ceremony, exhibits and a bookstore.

Conference registration is $25.00 (students are free) and the closing banquet is $25.00 ($15.00 for students).
