We are so excited to invite you to our first fundraiser since early 2020! We will be hosted by the ever-generous Michelson family in Brentwood where we will be honoring the one and only Priscilla Presley for her lifetime of animal advocacy. We will also be recognizing two legislators, Assemblymembers Marie Waldron and Wendy Carrillo, who have continually championed the needs of animals throughout their political careers.
It’s been a tough few years for many in the nonprofit space, and we are no exception. Before the pandemic, SCIL was sponsoring 8 to 11 bills per year. We celebrated massive legislative wins with you: in 2017, we kicked puppy mill breeders out of retail pet stores; in 2018, we banned the sale of cosmetics tested on animals and got plant-based options in all state hospitals and prisons; and in 2019, we ended commercial and recreational fur trapping and saved wild animals from circuses.
Since then, we have made significant progress by getting five bills signed into law. But now, we are ready to recapture the momentum we had before Covid.
Thank you to everyone who made donations to keep us going during that time. We are grateful for every dollar we raise and put it to good use saving and protecting animals.
Please share this email far and wide. We hope to see you July 15th for the Animal Rights Event of the Year!
