AAM: A Fur-Free Future ~ How we end the fur trade
« From provocative anti-fur campaigns that led to awareness, but no policy, to bridging the gap between fashion companies and animal rights activists, the fur-free movement has been undermining the fur industry since the 1980s. In response to the growing consumer demand for sustainable and ethical products, the fashion world has seemingly gone fur-free opting for more innovative alternatives. Legislators at city, state and federal levels are now looking to align policy with consumer and corporate values by introducing bans on new fur sales. Please join PJ Smith, director of fashion policy for the HSUS, as he discusses the fur-free movement today and where we go from here to ensure that the fur industry is finally relegated to the history books once and for all.
PJ Smith, director of fashion policy at the Humane Society of the United States. For more than a decade, PJ has worked with dozens of top fashion companies—including ELLE magazine, Kering, Prada, Dolce&Gabbana, Chanel, Michael Kors and Farfetch —to set policies that have reformed supply chains and revolutionized the way the fashion industry views animals. In 2010, PJ helped pass the federal Truth in Fur Labeling Act, which ensures clear and proper labeling for all fur products sold in the U.S., and in 2019, he was instrumental in California becoming the first state to phase out new fur sales. He resides in Austin, Texas.
