Fur Free Friday

Fur Free Friday is quickly approaching (Nov 23) and IDA is asking activists to send us information on your event so we can post it on our website <<>>.  You can also order free anti-fur materials from our website. Please make sure to visit our website often in the coming weeks, as new updates will be added daily. www. will be an invaluable resource for education and activism as FFF approaches.

Despite our gains in the struggle against fur, we are now at a critical juncture. Young celebrities and designers are flaunting animal skins once again, and the public seems to be swayed. More than ever before, we need to join together to speak out against the 40 million animals who are trapped, imprisoned, gassed, strangled and anally electrocuted by the fur trade.

Take action on this international day of protest and help spread compassion by joining in the struggle to end the fur trade.

Although the WTC tragedy and the current state the world is in has led to huge unrest in our society, we feel that this is a great time to spread the message of compassion. We anticipate that Fur Free Friday events can be most effective this year if the message of peace and compassion is highly emphasized. We would love to hear your feedback on this.

For further questions or concerns, please call Joyce Friedman at 212-462-3068.
And visit  to inform us of your event or to learn of an event in your area.
