AFS Conference & Cruelty Free Fashion Show, September 9!
Save the date! Our conference will be held on Saturday, September 9, in Manhattan, NY.  It will be a full day event and it will include exhibitors (non-animal derived products can be sold), speakers, documentaries, entertainment and of course the cruelty free fashion show in the evening. We plan to serve 3 meals: breakfast, lunch and a reception in the evening. More >>> AFSConference.org

BILLBOARD
Please help us have a billboard in New York City. It's where fur fashionistas have become increasingly bolder and fashion shows might as well be renamed "Fur Fashion Show," and of course, consumers are following the trend. Added to that, the First Family are fur aficionados and totally pro-corporation, therefore, the fur industry will no doubt have a real boost under this new administration. How can we fight back?  Our very limited resources leave us with no option but to solicit donations for a billboard in NY to be seen by millions of people. We're counting on your sympathy for the yearly 100+ million victims of the bloody fur trade. Any amount you donate is most welcome!  Thank you. Donate on this link:  http://www.furfreesociety.org/BILLBOARDFUNDRAISER.html
 
The US wildlife's nightmare has begun.
If the pictures you see here are offensive to you, and you live anywhere near the woods, read on.   "The U.S. House of Representatives just voted to legalize the killing of black bear cubs and their mothers at their dens in Alaska’s national wildlife refuges. The controversial measure, backed by the National Rifle Association (NRA), overturns a ‘Fair Chase’ rule, promulgated by the Obama administration, that also limited baiting, trapping, and the use of airplanes to track and shoot bears and wolves on U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service lands in Alaska. More: https://thinkprogress.org/congress-legalized-killing-bear-cubs-in-refuges-9ca5d3ae3929#.qaikhxu1h  -- Most likely this is very the first step for the following:
 
"The Sportsmens Act, Title I: Recreational shooting," already in the Senate, sponsored by Senators Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) and Dan Sullivan (R-AK). It passed the House and is now in the Senate waiting for the right opportunity to get approved and then forwarded to the president to sign it into law. If approved, all wildlife refuges will be open to trophy hunters, even in your backyard. This bill has been going on for years, getting a new number and name each year. It was finally approved by the House and it is now in the Senate which will most likely approve it. Any doubts that the President will sign it into law?  https://www.congress.gov/bill/114th-congress/senate-bill/405
 
You can still take action by contacting your Senators asking them to vote against it. Find legislators: http://antifursocietyinternational.org/find-legislators.php
