PETITION TARGET: California Governor Gavin Newsom
UPDATE: On October 12, 2019, Governor Newsom signed this legislation into law, making California the first state in the country to ban the sale and manufacture of new fur products. We applaud Governor Newsom for passing this important law, which have ripple effects around the world.
Trapped inside tiny cages with no natural or social stimulation day after day, many animals lose their minds. It’s common for animals to self-mutilate, ripping out their hair or gnawing at their bodies.
California aims to be the first state in America to ban the sale of fur with bill AB44.
Authored by Assemblywoman Laura Friedman (D-Glendale), the bill will make it illegal to sell, trade, donate, manufacture or distribute any product made using fur (with exceptions for used items.) Any first-time violation will result in a $500 fine, increasing with each offense.
Not only is the life of an animal in a fur farm unbearable, but their deaths are equally barbaric. In order to preserve their pelts, animals are killed in horrific ways such as anal electrocution or gassing.
No living being deserves to suffer in this way, especially not for fashion. We must put an end to this archaic industry, starting with banning fur in California.
Sign this petition urging California Governor Gavin Newsom to support the ban on fur in California, preventing the suffering and slaughter of innocent animals.
