From California To Africa, Peace 4 Animals Is Taking On Critical Animal Welfare Issues Worldwide; Urgent Help Is Needed Before June 26th!

As Peace 4 Animals maintains a full schedule of animal advocacy work and awareness globally, from across Africa to the U.S., founder Katie Cleary has been filming her new documentary “We Are One,” incorporating important legislation in the California State Capitol in Sacramento into this important film. Peace 4 Animals’ work continues on all fronts of animal welfare to combine and advance the many interests of the organization’s goals to coexist with all species worldwide.

Most recently, a camera crew has been following Cleary’s team while documenting the non-profit’s collaborative efforts with Social Compassion In Legislation, the sponsor of the bills, at the California State Capitol to turn history-making legislation including (SB1487) The Iconic African Species Protection Act and (SB1249) The California Cruelty-Free Cosmetics Act into law.

The footage, which also features fellow high-profile animal advocates including Maggie Q, Harley Quinn Smith and John Salley as well as President of Social Compassion in Legislation, Judie Mancuso, lobbying on behalf of the bills, will be interwoven into “We Are One,” the follow-up to Cleary’s award-winning documentary “Give Me Shelter” that premiered on Netflix in 2014.

“We Are One” gives people a much-needed glimpse into various issues throughout the world that need to be addressed, from ending cruel and unnecessary testing on animals to what needs to be done to save endangered species from extinction.

How You Can Help Now!

Both SB 1487, The Iconic African Species Protection Act, and SB1249, the California Cruelty-Free Cosmetics Act, have advanced to be heard and voted on next week.

Please call to support the passage of the bills now through the end of the day on Monday, June 25th. Both bills will be voted on again on Tuesday, June 26th.

SB 1487 (Stern) – Iconic African Species Protection Act will ban the possession of any parts of an African elephant, African lion, leopard, black or white rhinoceros, giraffe, Jentink’s duiker, plains zebra, mountain zebra, hippopotamus, and striped hyena throughout the state.

Call: Assembly Water, Parks, & Wildlife Committee Chair – Edward Garcia at 916-319-2056 and or Vice Chair James Gallagher at 916-319-2003.

SB 1249 (Galliano) – CA Cruelty-Free Cosmetics Act would make it unlawful for any cosmetic manufacturer to knowingly import or sell any cosmetic, including personal hygiene products such as deodorant, shampoo, or conditioner, in California if the final product or any component of the product was tested on animals after January 1, 2020.

Call Assembly Judiciary Committee Chair Mark Stone at 916-319-2029 and or Vice Chair Jordan Cunningham at 916-319-2035 and tell them Californians do not want their cosmetic products tested on animals no matter where in the world the testing takes place!
