African American Faith Leaders & Hundreds Of Congregants To Rally Against Fur Ban

May 8, 2019

Today at 3:00 PM ET at the steps of New York City Hall, hundreds of African American faith leaders and their parishioners will rally against a City Council proposal to ban the sale of real fur. Fur has significant cultural, religious, and historical significance to African-Americans, who are among the biggest consumers of fur products.

Attendees say the ban discriminates against their community and their right to buy and wear products of their own choosing.
