For 23 years, CAF organized the International Compassionate Living Festival (ICLF) in Raleigh, NC, where Tom was a professor of philosophy at North Carolina State University, and where the Tom Regan Animal Rights Archive is now housed. The ICLF brought artists, academics, and activists together to learn from and be inspired by those opening the doors to our knowledge of other-than-human animals. You can listen to attendees talking about their experiences at the ICLF here.

CAF relaunched these festivals in October 2017 with Compassion Arts Festival. Click below to learn more.
