We've got a big announcement about the East Coast Tour! Welcoming a new member to the team -- 
Forward to Friend

AREN'T THEY BEAUTIFUL! That chariot you see in the picture above is the newest OTC East Coast Tour Member! OUR NEW VAN! 

We're totally excited to let everyone know that we are now the proud owners of this king of the road! We are some tune-ups away from having this sweet ride road-ready, and couldn't resist updating all of you on how excited we are! The tour feels more and more real with each passing day, and things like buying our fixer-upper van may seem like small potatoes, but to us it's another step closer to our kick-off! 

All the tour members have been busy planning and getting fundraisers together. We're doing lots of great press all over the place, and buzz is steadily building all along the tour route! We are ALWAYS looking for community support and leads on where we could do our different events, who to involve and where to hang out when we are in town, so if you can offer any trail-guide skills to our tour director we'd love to hear from you! You can email Mike by sending something off to 

We also are happy to announce we are now on Instagram! Follow @openthecagestour ( if you don't have an account but want to follow along) and we'll be posting up pictures starting now and throughout the whole East Coast Tour! You can also find us on Google+ as we just launched our community page and would be happy to have some new +1's

Don't forget to stay up to date with our facebook page and website, and please forward this email to anyone you think might be interested in the tour! Thanks again for being on our mailing list and for being part of our fight for animals in labs. We are sincerely happy to have all of you with us, for the animals. We couldn't have made this progress without your support, and we are so grateful for all of it. 

See you this summer East Coast (in this beautiful tour van!)

The OTC Team

Tour Schedule
Some of you may have missed it, but we were fortunate enough to have been featured on a recent episode of Animal Voices! Veteran host, and OTC East Coast Tour Member Lauren hosted Tour Director Mike and Volunteer Coordinator Jen for a full length feature interview. We talk highlights and objectives for the west and east coast tours and share some of our favourite moments, as well as the history of the tour and the role of animal advocacy in our daily lives.

Give it a listen!  
The tour has always been about reestablishing the grassroots networks across the country that were once strong and vibrant communities of animal advocates, working with each other on campaigns! We are asking for endorsements from groups, collectives, vegan businesses and organizations if you support the tour and what we are trying to do. If you want to endorse us, we will list your group and a short message on our site, and in exchange we ask that you reach out to others and spread the word about what we are doing! We're better together!
