Join the leading national conference in animal advocacy

Taking Action for Animals (TAFA) brings together Humane Society of the United States volunteers, advocates and animal welfare organizations from across the country for one shared goal: to better the lives of animals and people alike.

TAFA 2022
July 15-18

Animal welfare issues didn’t just go away while we were stuck at home the past two years—and as the world begins opening up again, it’s time to bring the fight for all animals back to the front lines! Be a part of this movement by coming to TAFA 2022 in Washington D.C., taking place July 15-18 at the Renaissance Washington, DC Downtown Hotel, with select livestreamed sessions for a virtual audience. Registration will open in early 2022. Advance in-person registration is just $120 and virtual registration is only $20!

We hope to see you when TAFA returns to its roots, with dozens of inspiring and informative sessions, an exhibit hall featuring more than 50 animal welfare organizations, as well as plant-based, earth-friendly vendors, plus opportunities for networking with like-minded advocates. Then, on Humane Lobby Day, you will have the unique opportunity to discuss the issues important to you on Capitol Hill.

Gain a better understanding of the many issues animals face in our society and learn how to take action in your community through lobbying, education and other citizen advocacy. We’re hard at work now putting together a schedule of sessions on the most vital topics affecting the welfare of animals today. Past session topics include stopping puppy mills, fur farms, factory farming and cosmetics testing.
