The votes are in! Star champion for animals Lea Michele has won a Do Something Award in the TV Star: Female category. Known for all her solid work standing up for horses who are forced to suffer in traffic—sustaining injuries and contracting diseases—to lead carriages in New York City, Lea isn’t afraid to expose the realities behind horse-drawn carriage cruelty.
It’s time for the horse-drawn carriage industry to end. Please join Lea in calling for an end to horse-drawn carriages in New York City. Contact NYC Council Speaker Christine Quinn and urge her to support a bill seeking to replace the carriages with eco-friendly classic cars.
You can write to Quinn at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Hello! My name is Nina, and I am a musician-in-training, and I play 7 instruments. I am a liberal, an LGBT activist, avid reader, composer, singer, and poi spinner. I am vegan, and a strong supporter of animal rights.
I have always lived in Los Angeles but my family and I went to Mexico for my parents wedding. So we came back to LA. I don't like LA but were here already what can I do unless I move out and find my own housing. I have always liked animals and it was til I was like about 14 when I learned about tests they do on animals and I began to explore animal cruelty because I was interested it in it. I have watched videos that just broke my heart so that's why today I'm doing all I can to not buy anything that has harmed an animal and I'm vegetarian .
