June 21-July 28, 2019: Beyond The Lies at Disrupt Festival

Our Beyond The Lies tour crew will be doing pay-per-view video outreach all summer at Disrupt Festival! If you’ll be at any of these events, come by our tent and say hello!
We bring the truth about how animals are raised and killed on farms and in slaughterhouses across the U.S. to people through powerful in-person outreach. We offer passersby $1 to watch our 4-minute documentary, then discuss how they can make compassionate choices in their lives! Volunteer / More info.
