Berkeley has taken a huge step in the right direction for animal rights. Earlier this month, the California city passed an initial ordinance banning the sale of fur, following the lead of cities like West Hollywood. The bill was spearheaded by Berkeley Coalition for Animals (BCA), an all-volunteer group that promotes animal-friendly legislation.
The majority of fur comes from animals raised on fur factory farms, where they are beaten, electrocuted, and even skinned alive for their fur. Learn more about the fur industry here, and reach out to your local legislators to urge them to adopt similar bans.
