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 [email protected].
