As a passionate group of students fighting for the ethical treatment of animals, we urge you to initiate a ban on the sale of fur in Rhode Island.
Animals are abused, slaughtered, and skinned for a cruel commercial enterprise. Rhode Island must follow in the footsteps of Los Angeles, a progressive city that successfully banned fur. Times are changing, and animal cruelty must no longer be tolerated, especially not by such a compassionate state as Rhode Island.
Please sign our petition asking the Rhode Island General Assembly to introduce and pass legislation to ban fur in our state.
I have added our target, David Cicilline, to this petition! He is our congress representative here in Rhode Island. Thank you for all your support!
