BIG NEWS! Open the Cages Alliance is now the Vegan Living Program!

As the Vegan Living Program has been Open the Cages Alliance's most successful effort, and given that we are now expanding the program in conjunction with other organizations, OTCA has completed a transition and name change to the Vegan Living Program. Educating and supporting new vegans has been the major thrust of our work for the past eight years. It is what we are most known for, and because of this we concluded that changing our name to reflect this made the most sense.

Over the years, we have been contacted by aspiring vegans and vegan activists in different parts of the country, asking us to bring our vegan mentorship program to their communities. We have resisted the idea of standardizing and creating a "one-size-fits-all" program, as we feel that the VLP is successful due in part to the way we customize our programming for each geographic location, and based on Vegan Pledge feedback. In order to expand the Vegan Living Program and stay true to what we believe makes it work, we've decided to put our energies into working with existing vegan groups and individuals who wish to set up VLPs unique to their cities.

As the Vegan Living Program, will continue sharing our model for free vegan education with existing community groups who wish to work with us, acting as consultants and collaborating with other activists who want to present their own VLPs. The friendly, welcoming feel, unequivocal vegan message, and commitment to free education will always be common threads, but we work with activists to customize the VLP programming, resources and content for their city's needs.

Because our name change is now complete, we have updated all of our materials, including this website. Thank you for your continued support!


Until All Are Free,
