      ********* CAFT WEEKLY ACTION ALERT **********
      <br><br>September 23, 2001 <br><br>Although the department sore
      Nordstrom's only has two fur departments in all of their 77
      stores nationwide, they carry a large number of full
      length fur and fur trimmed garments in most of the
      outerwear departments of their stores. CAFT sent a letter
      to Mr. Peter E. Nordstrom, President of Full-Line
      Stores for Nordstrom's asking that he immediately adopt
      a no fur policy. <br><br>Although Mr. Nordstrom's
      response did seem to imply an eventual discontinuation of
      fur sales at Nordstrom's, he has not confirmed that
      he <br>will close the remaining two fur departments
      and adopt a full no-fur policy. <br><br>Please
      contact Mr. Nordstrom and ask that he immediately adopt a
      no-fur policy. If possible, please include copies of any
      Nordstrom sales receipts you may have. This will show Mr.
      Nordstrom that many of his customers do indeed wish to see
      Nordstrom discontinue carrying garments containing animal
      fur. <br><br>Mr. Peter E. Nordstrom, President of
      Full-Line Stores Nordstrom's <br>1501 Fifth Avenue
      <br>Seattle, WA 98101-1603 <br>206-628-2111
      <br>pete.nordstrom@... <br><br>If you send an email, please be sure to
      print it out and mail it to Nordstrom's. Letters and
      calls are more effective then emails. CAFT would
      <br>appreciate a copy of any correspondence. <br><br>**** Sample
      letter **** <br><br>Dear Nordstrom: <br><br>I am very
      disappointed that Nordstrom's has not yet made a commitment
      against the sale of fur and fur-trimmed products.
      <br><br>Each year more than 40 million animals are killed for
      fashion. Whether used as a full-length coat or simple
      trim, fur represents senseless pain and <br>suffering.
      <br><br>Animals caught in traps or snares may suffer for days
      before dying of exposure, exhaustion, or strangulation..
      In addition to the desired <br>fur-bearing animals,
      trappers also catch non-target animals including deer,
      birds, squirrels, endangered species, and companion cats
      and dogs. <br><br>Farm-raised fur comes from animals
      kept in tiny, filthy cages deprived ofadequate
      protection from the elements. There are no U.S. laws
      regulating <br>how animals on fur farms are to be housed or
      killed. The techniques used to kill animals on fur farms
      includes neck snapping, anal electrocution, and crude
      carbon monoxide or dioxide "gas chambers" that are
      notorious for <br>prolonging the death of animals and for
      their ineffectiveness, allowing animals to regain
      consciousness while being skinned. <br><br>There is nothing
      fashionable about cruelty to animals. Please implement a
      permanent policy against the sale of fur and fur-trimmed
      products. <br><br>Sincerely, <br><br>**** End sample letter

      Message 2844 of 2844 , Feb 7, 2002
        Join with concerned citizens, celebrities,
        political and noted animal rights leaders to help stop
        cruel factory farming practices in New Jersey and
        across the United States. New Jersey is the only state
        with legislation<br>requiring the development of
        standards for the "humane" raising of farm animals, and it
        is in position to lead the nation in banning
        inhumane farming practices. <br>Certain farming practices
        are clearly inhumane, and must therefore be outlawed
        in New Jersey. Please be part of this historic
        campaign, and help prohibit cruel factory farming.
        Confirmed speakers include: Mary <br>Tyler Moore, Grant
        Aleksander, Peter Singer, Howard Lyman, Wayne Pacelle, David
        Wolfson, Gene and Lorri Bauston, and Sue Coe. The event is
        being organized by Farm Sanctuary, and sponsored by
        Compassion in World Farming, the Fund for Animals, and the
        Humane Society of the United States.<br><br>The
        conference will be held at the Lafayette Yard Marriott in
        downtown Trenton, NJ on Sunday, April 7th, from 9 am to
        8pm. And the Rally will be held at the State Capitol,
        two blocks from the hotel, on Monday morning<br>from
        10am to noon.<br><br>To register please see
