In March, several hundred people came together in Berkeley, California, for the annual Conscious Eating Conference hosted by United Poultry Concerns. Throughout the day, advocates, authors and philosophers from around the country made presentations about the ethics of eating and how food choices impact animals, human health and the planet.


The David Brower Center in Berkeley was filled to capacity with several hundred attendees.
