FARM's Portland Office Grand Opening...

Would you like to eat tasty food, get a chance to win free prizes, check out the 10 Billion Lives truck while it's on a short break from veganizing thousands of teenagers, and meet FARM's staffers and directors? Well then we hope you'll stop by to check out our new office space! After 30 years operating solely out of the DC area, Farm Animal Rights Movement has opened our National Campaigns Office in Portland, OR! We are thrilled to be here and look forward to contributing to Portland's fantastic local vegan community while continuing to work on our national campaigns, like the highly successful 10 Billion Lives Tour.

FARM's local staff will be joined by Executive Director Michael Webermann, who will be in town from the main office in DC. The 10 Billion Lives truck will be parked right outside, screening a short documentary about the tour produced by Portland's Burning Hearts Media.

    We have so much food being donated, including vegan friendly beer from Laurelwood Brewery! We will also have a keg of root beer, and I can't even begin to mention the amazing raffle items we have. Long story short, you don't want to miss this event! See you there!
