Dear Cleveland Orchestra,
My name is Christina LaMonica and I am the Founder and President of Ivory Free Ohio, a grassroots organization dedicated to ending the sale and trade of all Ivory, Rhino Horn, and Trophy Hunting products. We have never met in person, but we have communicated over the telephone and through emails regarding the push to have these products banned in the state of Ohio. As you may know I approached my District Senator in June, 2015. I wanted to educate him about the devastating effects of the illegal Ivory trade, while encouraging him to create Legislation that would protect our national security and help save Africa’s keystone species from extinction.
Elephants DC Founder; Jen Samuel, discusses China’s ban on ivory and how online auction sites provide a cover for the trafficking of illegal ivory here in the United States and around the world.
Tell Ohio’s Legislators to stand up for wildlife and vote for a complete ban of ivory, rhino horn, and trophy hunting products in our state. Copy and paste the template below and email your Governor, your State Senator, and your State Representative.
Subject: Institute a complete ban without exemptions on ivory, rhino horn, and trophy hunting products.
Dear State Legislators and Governor,
I am writing to you as a constituent and supporter of Ivory Free Ohio, to ask that you support legislation banning all intrastate sales of ivory, rhino horn, and trophy hunting products, in Ohio.
