NEW YORK (AP) — A burgeoning movement to outlaw fur is seeking to make its biggest statement yet in the fashion mecca of New York City. Lawmakers are pushing a measure that would ban the sale of all new fur products in the city where such garments were once common and style-setters including Marilyn Monroe, Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, Joe Namath and Sean “Diddy” Combs have all rocked furs over the years.

Job Training is Giving Her a Second Chance. Supported by The Neediest Cases Fund ByRemy Tumin Jan. 14, 2019 The first time Laurie Fleming visited New York City to see if it was the right fit, she knew she had to live here. At the time, she was living in Columbus, Ohio, working in the county records office. “Right after 9/11 I thought, what other place to be but New York?” she recalled.
