VOTE for NYCLASS Endorsed Candidates in NYC’s Primary Election!

The animals are counting on us to protect them by voting for candidates who support life-saving animal rights legislation! NYCLASS is excited to share our 2021 Primary Election Endorsements for City Council, Borough President, and District Attorney in New York City! All of the candidates we endorse share our values about animal rights being an important part of social justice and a more compassionate, fair society for all. NYCLASS proudly supports these candidates who champion animal rights legislation that protects all animals - from pets, animals used for food and profit, to wildlife - and who will fight to end rampant carriage horse abuse in New York City.

VOTE FOR ANIMAL RIGHTS: Primary Election day is Tuesday, June 22, 2021 and polls will be open 6am to 9pm. Find your Election Day poll site HERE. We can only continue making history for animals in NYC if we elect pro-animal rights candidates into office. We are counting on you to VOTE for these compassionate candidates, and to encourage your friends and family to do the same! Learn more about ranked-choice voting here. 

Many of our supports have asked us who we are endorsing for Mayor. NYCLASS is not endorsing a candidate for Mayor, but we are strongly urging our supporters to NOT support the candidate for Mayor who ranked WORST for animal rights - Andrew Yang. The New York Daily News published this powerful Op-Ed  written by NYCLASS co-founders Wendy Neu and Steve Nislick titled "Remember the horses: Andrew Yang's animal-rights problem."
