From Direct Action Everywhere:
“The California fur ban passed its first test. Today, the Committee on Water, Parks, and Wildlife of the California Assembly voted eight to four to approve AB44, the California statewide fur ban. Now we need your help to sustain this change.
Over 100 individuals from 14 animal rights organizations appeared during the committee hearing to show their support for the bill. Speakers for the ban highlighted the cruelty to animals in the fur trade, including death by anal electrocution, and implored the committee to be a leader in ending this injustice. And thousands more people supported online. It is thanks to you that the committee made the right decision.
But the effort is only beginning. The bill needs to pass through several more committees in both the Assembly and the Senate before facing votes in both chambers. The opposition, which is overwhelmingly comprised by industry groups outside of California, will fight it every step of the way.”
