animal rights

I passionately believe we need to advocate for the humane treatment of animals. MLK said, “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.” If people allow injustices to animals to exist, we are only increasing the likelihood of injustices against other people.

  • Fund plant-based nutrition education in all public schools.

  • Increase funding for Animal Care Centers of NYC and independent animal rescue organizations.

  • Ban the inhumane practice of horse carriages in NYC.

  • Oppose the killing of the Canadian Geese and Staten Island Deer.
