Farm Animal Rights Movement is seeking passionate, personable activists for contracted positions (Lead Operator & Associate Operator) on the 10 Billion Lives Tour. These positions require traveling full time on tour vehicles (two people per tour) within various regions of the US to hold pay-per-view video outreach events.

Experienced and aspiring activists alike are encouraged to apply! Learn more about the program at www.10billiontour.org.
