Today, in a historic move, the Chicago City Council banned the sale of
cruel foie gras within city limits! The passing of this humane
proposal, introduced by Alderman Joe Moore, makes Chicago the first
city in America to enact such a measure. The vote relays the humane
concerns of Illinois citizens who were recently polled by Zogby,
revealing an overwhelming 79 percent of whom agree that foie gras
production should be banned in the state. This legislation will have
repercussions across the country.
This is a triumph for farm animals everywhere and the individuals who
advocate on their behalf. THANK YOU to all who worked to help make this
amazing victory a reality!
