Animal Rights

I firmly believe that we can judge a society based on how it treats its most vulnerable members. I have been a vegetarian for nearly 20 years and I am deeply committed to the protection of animals in our city.

Protecting Animals

  • Adequately fund AC&C and ensure that all animals housed by the city are cared for with proper nutrition and medical care.

  • Continue the efforts to build fully operational animal shelters in the Bronx and Queens

  • Provide resources for low income New Yorkers to properly care for their pets

  • Support the WildlifeNYC initiative to promote awareness and co-existence with urban wildlife

Humane Education

  • End vivisection and “hatching projects” in New York City schools.

  • Pass legislation to ensure that humane education is taught in all schools, as mandated by state law

  • Provide plant-based meal options for all NYC students

Humane Economy

  • Ban the sale of fur and work to ensure that all workers in the industry are able to transition to alternative employment

  • Permanently ban the licensing of live animal markets anywhere within city limits

  • End the horse carriage industry in NYC and work to ensure that all workers in the industry are able to transition to alternative employment
