Bill to Ban Foie Gras in NYC Being Introduced on Wednesday

On Wednesday, Nov. 29, city council member Alan Gerson (D-Manhattan) will introduce a bill to ban the sale of foie gras in New York City. Members of The Humane Society of the United States, the League of Humane Voters of New York City, and Farm Sanctuary will be there, along with religious leaders, celebrities, animal behavior experts, and veterinarians.

The bill is the result of a lawsuit that’s being brought against the New York State Department of Agriculture and Markets. The hope is that New York will join California and a number of countries, which have banned production of the “delicacy,” and Chicago, which prohibits its sale (though admittedly, not very effectively).

Come out to City Hall (260 Broadway & Chambers) on Wednesday at 1pm to support this important piece of legislation, and invite everyone you know. If you can, reach out to local media and ask them to cover this historic event. To find out how you can help or for more information, contact Wendy Berner at 646-369-6212 or wendy.berner@yahoo.com.
