In cooperation with Open Cages, we invite you to our first fundraising webinar with an extraordinary guest: Kim Stallwood - worldwide recognized international consultant, independent scholar, and author and speaker on animal rights.
Join us on 25th August, 8 p.m. CEST. The webinar is completely FREE but if you’d like to support Open Cages - a farm animal protection organization from Poland that publishes investigations from animal farms and promotes the vegan lifestyle - we’ll be asking you for a small donation after the meeting. It’ll also help OpenBooks to create more fundraising webinars with more specialists and effective activists.
What are the core values of animal advocacy? What is the Animal Industrial Complex and how we should fight it? Why should we stop the moral crusade and move forward? + You’ll get the opportunity to ask your own questions!
Join us on 25th Augst, 8.p.m. CEST (Central European Summer Time)

WHY ARE WE FUNDRAISING FOR OPEN CAGES?
Animal cruelty knows no borders and we need to work internationally. For these reasons, we’ve decided to support Open Cages - farm animal advocacy organization with particular focus on Central and Eastern Europe that publishes investigations from animal farms and promotes the vegan lifestyle. Open Cages focuses on systemic social change, documenting the conditions of factory farming, lobbying for legislative changes, and publishes reports, brochures and leaflets on industrial livestock farming, runs information stands with 3D videos, educates people about plant-based cooking and conducts corporate outreach.
