Meet FARM's New 10BL Southwest Tour Crew!

We're proud to introduce our new 10 Billion Lives Southwest Tour crew - Di Lamont and Josh Kissel. They've been vegan for a combined ten years and are passionate about helping farmed animals. Di joined us after a stint at Farm Sanctuary and Josh is a student returning to school in the fall for a PhD in philosophy. We're excited to have them join the FARM team and help us save animals.

FARM's outstanding former Southwest Tour operators Todd Lee and Angie Fitzgerald just wrapped up nearly ten months of outreach. They visited 67 schools and spoke with 23,962 students!

FARM Remembers Good Friend, Casey Kasem

We mourn the passing of animal rights hero, Casey Kasem. For many years, he served as National Chair of our Great American Meatout campaign. He addressed a number of our functions in Los Angeles. In 2005, FARM presented him the Celebrity Animal Advocate Award at the annual Animal Rights National Conference. Casey was a rare gift to humanity. FARM and the animals will miss him.
