As the parent of two dogs I believe that all living creatures deserve rights, protection, and justice. For too long, animals, like humans, have been held down by a system of oppression that abuses and exploits them. We must advocate and institute legislation that will ensure legal rights, protections, and safety for all animals.
As a City Councilmember, I will fight to:
Increase funding for non-profit animal rescue organizations and increase legal & safety protections for our city's wildlife.
Ensure pet-friendly housing for everyone, especially the disabled and our seniors.
Support and vote for Intro 1483, that will require that the Department of Homeless Services, in collaboration with the Department of Social Services, develop a plan to accommodate pets of homeless individuals in order to ensure we have pet-friendly shelters.
Support and vote for Intro 1465, that would require that the Department of Education to report on humane animal treatment instruction in public elementary schools.
Prohibit all NYC public schools from using eggs, live baby chickens ad ducks, or any animal for classroom projects.
End factory farming.
Support and vote on legislation that would enforce all firework displays to be silent.
Support and vote for Res. 1151, that calls on all corporate and government entities to divest from agricultural industries that benefit from deforestation and the acceleration of global warming.
Ban the shipment of live animals to NYC through mail.
Ban the sale of products that contain animal fur.
Make plant-based eating accessible to everyone.
Cosponsor and vote for legislation to ban horse carriages in NYC.
