VICTORY! Voters in Boulder, Colorado passed the Humane Clothing Act prohibiting the sale and manufacture of new fur products!
This is the latest in a series of recent victories for fur-bearing animals.
The towns of Weston and Wellesley in Massachusetts and the city of Ann Arbor in Michigan banned fur sales in 2020 and 2021.
California became the first state in the nation to ban fur sales in 2019, after city bans in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Berkeley and West Hollywood led the way.
Since then, more states have introduced bills to ban fur sales, including Rhode Island, Oregon, Connecticut, Hawaii and New York.
The fur ban in Boulder was a ballot initiative, meaning the people of Boulder made it happen.
The public is rising up to defend animals!
Thanks to Fur Free Boulder for leading the initiative.
And I mean…It is another step in a long fight against fur.
What it really the people done is tell the world that the future is going fur free, and that Boulder is a kind place for animals.
There are alternatives for the look, there are alternatives for the warmth, there are so many different ways to keep ourselves warm besides using the body of an animal who didn’t want to die.
We hope it can lead to for bans in other places, we hope it can lead to more animal friendly legislation down the road.
My best regards to all, Venus
