Using Local Legislation to Protect Animals: Fur Bans
8/20/20 12-1pm PT
Learn how to fight back against the cruel fur industry by passing a fur ban in your community! Animals farmed for their fur endure horrific abuse before being killed through gassing, electrocution, neck-breaking, and poisoning. Led by Animal Legal Defense Fund Campaigns Manager Elizabeth Holtz, this webinar will walk you through the mechanics of fur production, the policy issues — including animal cruelty, environmental impacts, and public health, and a round-up of existing international, state, and local laws prohibiting the sale of fur. While the webinar will touch on the elements of local legislative campaigns, please refer to earlier webinars (available at aldf.org/circusban and aldf.org/retailban) for an in-depth look at grassroots campaigning.
