About the theme: PLANT YOUR FLAG

Quick 1 Forum2017 Cover v1.jpg

We must have a bold vision of the world we want and a clear path to get there. 

We are at the beginning of a long, uncertain, and bumpy road towards animal liberation. It took over 30 years of attempts before the first successful ascent of Mt. Everest. Yet today, hundreds of people reach the summit annually. The only reason climbing the infamous mountain is much more approachable today is because of the flags (knowledge, resources, and yes, literal flags) laid down by preceding climbers. While none of us can single-handedly mark the entire path to our summit, every one of us can plant flags along the way. 

What flag will you plant?
