Amy Bergmann is a member of an animal advocacy group called “Richmond Friends of Animals.” Members can choose to participate in a variety of local and national animal advocacy issues from Fur-Free Friday to the Walk for Farm Animals, to protesting veal at local restaurants or the treatment of animals in the circus, etc. Amy started getting involved with animal issues in college when she started volunteering at the local animal shelter. Amy is currently the proud guardian of three rescue dogs, two rescue gerbils, and one rescue horse, and she is proud to speak up for animals.

-It's time to get into the fur-free spirit! Friday, November 26 (the day after Thanksgiving) is Fur-Free Friday—the day on which animal lovers all around the world will educate holiday shoppers about the cruel fur industry. Every year, the fur industry heartlessly kills 50 million animals (www.bornfreeusa.org)--many of whom are skinned alive. This holiday season, we encourage you to take a stand against cruelty—do not include fur or fur-trimmed items on your holiday shopping list.
- Join the Richmond Youth Peace Project for a FREE interactive program on preventing youth gun violence.
