From In Defense of Animals:

Autumn is here, and "fashionistas" everywhere are buying, selling, or writing about fall wardrobes. Don't forget an essential day in the fall "fashion season" - Fur Free Friday! Join us again this year as we urge shoppers to never buy fur, stores to stop selling fur, and media fashion writers to reveal the truth behind fur.

Every year, over 50 million animals are brutally killed and skinned to make fur products. These animals experience a tremendous amount of suffering in traps or on fur farms.

While many companies have fulfilled their pledge to go fur-free, other popular brands and retailers such as Nordstroms continue to profit from animal suffering.

Portland, Oregon, 11 am - 1 pm, meet at the SW corner of Broadway and Yamhill (in front of Nordstrom)
