Join IDA to take action on Fur Free Friday—November 27!

Fur Free Friday is just three weeks away, November 27th, when animal advocates around the world will raise their voices in unison to educate shoppers about the real cost of buying fur. The cost is the cold, brutal fact that more than 50 MILLION fur-bearing animals are slaughtered for fashion each year. Bored, cramped and going crazy in filthy cages on fur farms or cruelly trapped and left to suffer, these wild animals need your help now.

Friday, November 27th
12 – 3 p.m.
Union Square, San Francisco

Members of In Defense of Animals (IDA) will be out wearing adorable animal masks on the busiest shopping day of the year encouraging consumers to not buy fur. Pictures of beautiful .foxes, beavers, wolves, and other furbearing animals with the words, "Thank you for not buying fur" will greet shoppers in Union Square. The demonstration is concurrent with demonstrations across the U.S. on the day after Thanksgiving, which has become known, nationally, as Fur Free Friday.

Wear fur animal masks, ears or hats with ears!

Fur Free Friday—the day after Thanksgiving— is one of the most widely attended demonstrations in the animal protection movement, always occurring simultaneously outside fur-selling retailers in high-visibility locations worldwide, on the busiest shopping day of the year. You will not want to miss this opportunity to join IDA in using Fur Free Friday to launch into our most successful anti-fur campaign season ever!
