Write to Kathy Ireland and let her know the truth about the fur industry
Kathy Ireland tweeted that if suffering occurred in the fur industry, she would never be involved.
In response, Seattle’s own Seattle Animal Defense League said “So being anally electrocuted where there are documented cases of animals being skinned alive isn’t suffering?”
She replied, “That is tragic. Designers who allow such things are not cautious. [American Legend] simply would not accept that behavior.”
SAY WHAT?! It looks like she needs some education about the fur industry.

Let her know @kathyireland

 

 

Act Now or Animal Abuse in Minnesota Will Be Illegal to Record and Expose

Tell Minnesota’s governor to VETO House File (H.F.) 1369 and Senate File (S.F.) 1118 if they are passed by the state legislature. This legislation would subject whistleblowers to criminal prosecution for their efforts to expose cruelty to animals on factory farms, in laboratories, and in other facilities in which animals are abused.

INFORMATION / TALKING POINTS

House File (H.F.) 1369 and Senate File (S.F.) 1118, which are now before the Minnesota state legislature, would subject whistleblowers to criminal prosecution for their efforts to expose cruelty to animals on factory farms, in laboratories, and in other facilities in which animals are abused. If passed, the bills would make it a crime to photograph or record video in these facilities without the owner’s consent—even if that evidence shows violations of the law. These bills would punish whistleblowers and could hurt vital undercover work that exposes routine—and often criminal—abuse of animals in the factory-farming and animal experimentation industries.

 

Let’s Ban the Primate “Pet” Trade
Urge you U.S. Congressional representative to co-sponor/support H.R. 4306, The Captive Primate Safety Act. This legislation would prohibit interstate commerce in primates.

About rachel

Hi, I'm Rachel and I've been active with NARN as long as I've been vegan 13 years! I made the choice to be vegan after learning about what happens to egg laying chickens and dairy cows. I had previously been vegetarian for 7 years because I finally made the connection that beef came from cows and pork came from pigs (duh, I know). I didn't want my food choices to cause the death of an animal. It just seems like common sense to not eat animals if you care at all about animals, the earth or your fellow human beings. I became active with NARN because after I found out about the atrocities happening to animals, I felt that I had to do what I could to help stop these injustices. NARN is local, puts the animals first, and networks with other groups. We aren't worried about getting credit - just helping the animals. One of my favorite quotes is: "I think the purpose of life is to be useful, to be responsible, to be compassionate. It is, above all to matter, to count, to stand for something, to have made some difference that you lived at all." ~ Leo Rosten and "Progress in every age results only from the fact that there are some men and women who refuse to believe that what they know to be right cannot be done." --Russell W. Davenport
