California Fur Ban - Assembly Bill 44

Assembly Bill 44 (AB 44), would ban the sale of animal fur throughout the State of California. California is the fifth largest economy in the world, and so AB 44 is likely to have a ripple effect felt throughout the world.

Worldwide, over 100 million animals are abused and killed for their fur every year. Whether raised on fur farms or trapped from the wild, fur-bearing animals including: foxes, coyotes, wolves, bobcats, beavers, otters, dogs, cats, and raccoon dogs, have unimaginable cruelty inflicted upon them by the fur industry.

As consumers become more aware of how animals are violently abused and killed for their fur, they are seeking to buy clothing, shoes, and accessories that are as ethically produced as they are functional and stylish. That is why designers, retailers, cities, and countries around the world are joining together in banning the sale of fur and shutting down fur farms. In the past 18 months, Chanel, Phillip Lim, Jean Paul Gaultier, Coach, Burberry, Gucci, Michael Kors, Prada, and more, have all banned fur. Here in the US, the cities of Los Angeles and San Francisco have recently banned the sale and manufacturing of fur, while cities and countries across Europe and Asia are doing the same.

It’s clear that fur is cruel and a relic of the past. Together, we can make California, the fifth largest economy in the world, fur free.

 

What’s next?

AB 44 has passed through 6 votes, and next will be heard in the state Senate Appropriations Committee, and has been places in a limbo stage called the suspense file because its cost to California exceeds $150,000. If we take action, AB-44 will be released from the suspense file on August 30th, and then it will move on to the full Senate floor for the final vote.

Californians: take action!
