20 November 2000 Issue


The Coalition to Abolish the Fur Trade (CAFT) is a grassroots organization dedicated to saving animals who would otherwise be slaughtered and skinned for nothing more than human vanity. They have chapters in cities across the United States, as well as in the United Kingdom and Sweden.

CAFT organizes campaigns to get fur out of major department stores, such as Macy's and Neiman Marcus. They also offer assistance to grassroots animal rights activists to help them organize in their communities. CAFT helps groups develop strategies to win campaigns in the most efficient manner possible.

CAFT is recognized throughout the animal rights movement as the most reliable source of up to date information on the fur industry. CAFT acts as an information clearinghouse for information on all aspects of the fur issue and furbearing animals.

CAFT has distributed the "Dirty Dozen" list of fur retailers for this season. This list ended up on the National Trappers Association email list whose members have been urged to call all of the retailers and ask them not to give in to the pressure of animal rights activists.

Your calls are important to this campaign so please keep calling and writing letters to these retailers. Let them know that you refuse to buy products from their stores if they continue to sell fur.
