Fur Free Friday 2021 March & Rally

Join us for the annual Fur/Cruelty Free Friday March and Rally the day after Thanksgiving in Downtown Portland! Everyone is welcome to this important event focused on encouraging retailers in adopting fur free policies and to urging local lawmakers to pass a fur sale ban for the City of Portland.

More details coming soon so keep your calendar blocked off for a whole weekend of action.

Meet at Nordstrom Downtown at 12pm on Friday 11/26. At approximately 12:15pm, we will begin our march through downtown Portland.

Banners, demo posters and leaflets will be provided, or make your own! If you make your own poster, please keep your messaging nonviolent/love-based.

The state of California as well as Wellesley MA and Ann Arbor MI have banned fur sales. Let’s#MakeFurHistoryin Portland.

Route/Accessibility: The route will begin at Nordstrom’s and end at Portland City Hall.

Dress code: Wear sensible and comfortable clothes and shoes and be prepared for the possibility of rain. This event goes on rain or shine.

Chants: Chant sheets will be handed out before the march starts.

Directions, Transit, and Parking:

There are bus, streetcar and MAX stops nearby. Plan your trip ontrimet.org
There is on-street parking and several nearby parking garageshttps://www.portlandoregon.gov/transportation/article/254736

Safety:
Most of the march will be on sidewalks and please obey traffic signals.

Can I bring my family/kids/non-vegans?

YES! Everyone is welcome as long as they are nonviolent and respectful. If you little ones will have a hard time keeping up with the moderate pace of the march we recommend bringing a small wagon or stroller. There will be bullhorns and chanting so headphones or earplugs might be a good idea for the little ones or those with sensitive ears.

Whether you can attend or not, you can take action for animals today and every day by calling your Portland City Commissioners and the Mayor’s office and urge them to introduce and pass the Portland Fur Sales Ban: 503-823-4000
