Inspirational talk by film subject Eddie Lama
Sheraton Suites Old Town Alexandria

Eddie Lama, subject of The Witness, will be attending this yearís Anti-Fur Society conference. The conference program is FREE and open to the public. Vegan meals are available for purchase ahead of time, with advance registration.
After the film screening, Eddie will offer an inspirational talk about his remarkable journey from a person who avoided animals to one who devoted his life to their liberation. Says the film's producer, James LaVeck, "While many people know and love Eddie from The Witness, few realize how revolutionary his approach to street-level education truly was. As the film shows, Eddie found an incredibly effective way to invite members of the public to face the truth and think for themselves, and to join him in taking a stand against the abuse and injustice inherent in all forms of animal exploitation. His respectful, yet uncompromising approach is timeless. It reveals the connections between all movements for justice, and is capable of reaching people of all ages and backgrounds. Many people also do not know that Eddie was one of the first people to courageously speak out when the current wave of industry-advocacy collaboration began to arise in the mid-2000ís."
