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.
