Fur Free Friday March

Fur Free Friday is the most widely attended annual demonstration in the history of the animal protection movement and the largest animal related free speech event in Portland. Don't miss this opportunity to join with thousands of other activists worldwide for this international day of action.

Signs and literature will be provided, just bring your family and friends. Dress for the weather and come rain or shine to speak up for the animals.

The City of Portland requires us to have at least 200 participants to march in the street, so mark your calendars, and please share this event and help spread the word.

Come celebrate Fur Free Friday with us!

Meeting at the corner of SW Broadway and Yamhill, 701 SW Broadway, Portland (Nordstrom's).

Contact Eric Phelps for more details - [masked] or[masked]-9996.

    Great group and chance to exercise our right to public protest for a worthy cause.

    My first FFF March. I was very disappointed to not see very many people show up. Come on! This is Portland. I don't think we had 200 people but we still got to march and the police were very polite and great at blocking off intersections. They even had some cupcakes from Sweet Pea. Let's all make an effort to show up next year!

      usually the main march part only lasts an hour or so. There is usually an after gathering wrap up so if you include that you should be done in two hours.

    Can you please explain what we will be marching for and what the signs will be about?

      I believe that In Defense of Animals sponsors the Fur Free Friday demonstrations locally, and it's a global demonstration organized by the International Anti-Fur Coalition. There will likely be signs available but you're encouraged to make your own sign that conveys your own personal message. Here's the international Facebook page: https://www.facebook.c...­

      Yep, Christopher is right on point. IDA is an acronym for In Defense of Animals and this is a world wide event. :)

    I am out of town this year but this is one of my favorite ways of advocating for animals each year. So easy, community based, and powerful when we come out in numbers. I will be there in spirit!

    The first time I marched on Fur Free Friday, I suddenly became aware of the LEATHER shoes on my feet. I've been a Vegan Shoe wearer ever since!
