LCA/CAFT California Tour

Members of the Coalition to Abolish the Fur Trade and Last Chance for Animals will engage in a campaign tour through the state of California next week. Activists will make campaign stops at Burlington Coat Factory stores in major cities.

We encourage local activists to come out and join us as we show Burlington Coat Factory that selling fur trim is a social liability.

Pasted below is a schedule of events. Please ask everyone you know to come out and join us. It is important that anyone who does not believe animals should be killed for fur comes out to join us.

* Saturday, January 8, 12pm to 1pm, BCF in San Diego:
3962 Clairemont Mesa Blvd

* Sunday, January 9, 12pm to 1pm, BCF in Torrance:

Each year 40 million animals are gassed, trapped, or electrocuted for their fur. Nearly 95% of the foxes, raccoons and coyotes killed for fur are used as trim.

Burlington Coat Factory is one of the nations largest retailers of fur trim. If Burlington stops selling the skins of animals slaughtered for vanity, it will strike a blow to those who kill foxes, raccoons and coyotes for fur.

Please support the CAFT/LCA California tour!

If you do not live in California, you can support the tour by calling Burlington Coat Factory to ask that they stop selling fur and fur trimmed products.
Call (609) 387-7800.
