Fur Free Friday
2015 Fur-Free Friday
On November 27th, 2015 animal advocates once again turned Black Friday, the busiest shopping day of the year, into Fur Free Friday. Anti-fur protests were held at high-traffic shopping centers around the country and aired on multiple news networks, educating millions of people on the cruelty of fur. Fur Free Friday events could be found in the Northeast in Massachusetts, Connecticut and Delaware, and in the Southern states of Florida and Tennessee; California was home to multiple protests, and Seattle, WA and Portland, OR carried the Northwest. In the Midwest, Chicago activists braved the cold to help make Fur Free Friday a success.

Each Year, approximately 50 million animals raised on fur farms around the world, which account for the majority of the world’s fur production, are killed for their pelts. This number does not include over a billion rabbits that are also killed each year (70 million alone in France).
This year’s annual Fur-Free Friday protest will educate and spread awareness to shoppers about the horrors of the fur industry – Fur Free Friday is not about activists “putting on a show.”
Please come to speak out on behalf of the billions of animals killed each year for their fur and the cruelty inflicted on them.
LCA posters and pamphlets will be provided
