Or send an e-mail to Erin at In Defense of Animals and we'll send you some. A limited number of banners are also available. And here's a few ideas about how to use them:


Please join IDA and the International Anti-Fur Coalition for worldwide outreach targeting the cruel, barbaric and unnecessary fur trade. Events are scheduled in Brazil, Canada, France, Ireland, Israel, Uruguay, Venezuela, and the U.S. with more events to be registered soon. During the week leading up to, and including, Valentineís weekend, IDA is urging you to join us by taking part in our Nordstrom campaign.

We are seeking activists all over the country to conduct education outreach events wherever Nordstrom stores exist. If there arenít any Nordstrom stores in your area, please use this opportunity to conduct any type of anti-fur outreach activity in your area. This can include leafleting outside any store that sells fur, tabling at a festival and/or passing out leaflets at any busy intersection in your area. The main focus is to take part in a global push to stop the supply and demand for fur which leaves millions upon millions of innocent animals in agony and subject to brutal death each year.

Nordstrom is in a perfect position to make the right choice and stop selling fur. They are still run by the fourth-generation Nordstrom family who has built a reputation of responsibility, and they have already come a long way on the issue of fur. Nordstrom no longer has fur salons in their stores, and removed all fur from their private line. The Nordstrom family loves animals and they refuse to wear fur, so why are they still sullying their good name by selling fur from other designers?

Nordstrom claims their customers demand fur, but from our ongoing education outreach outside their stores, we know better. Nordstrom customers are compassionate or they simply arenít yet educated about the tremendous suffering involved in even a fur-trimmed coat or accessory.

Help IDA convince Nordstrom to lead the way in compassion and become the first major upscale department store to go totally fur free!

Please contact Matt Rossell, [email protected] or 503-249-9996, if you are interested in spearheading an outreach event at a Nordstrom in your area. We can supply you with flyers, posters and banners for your event. For a list of Nordstrom locations, please go to
