Hi liz,

After five years of leading the fight for animal rights in NYC, it's time for the three of us (Allie, Chelsie and Julie) to move on from NYCLASS. We are excited to announce that we will be leaving NYCLASS to launch new endeavors for animal rights.

Thank you to all of you who have worked so passionately with us over the last five years. Organizing with you to build a more compassionate New York has been an honor. Through the setbacks and victories, you stood by us time and time again. Together, we organized a strong movement of humane voters and our bold approach has since been adopted by activists in other parts of the country.
You were a part of making history for animals. Five years ago, most politicians in New York didn't take animal rights seriously. They ignored us when we pointed out the abuse faced by horses and other animals with whom we share this city. But, by demonstrating that we can make a difference in elections, we have put animal rights on the political map. In fact, we now have City Council Members and state legislators who proactively seek to sponsor animal protection laws.
Finally, while we have not yet accomplished our goal of getting carriage horses off the streets, our collective work has made the plight of the horses - and other animals - a part of the public discourse. There is no doubt that the animal rights community is a growing political force that will be reckoned with for years to come. This would not have happened without humane voters like you.
Going forward, please use our personal contact info below. We would love for you to keep in touch! We look forward to continuing to work with you to make this a better world for animals:
