We found this gentle, handsome pigeon scared on the sidewalk in #Brooklyn, unable to fly. Off to the @wildbirdfund! Rescuing an injured #pigeon is easy! All you need is a dry cardboard box for transport, paper towels or newspaper for a soft floor, bird seed or raw sunflower seeds, and a shallow cup of water. 🐦

A groundbreaking exposé of over 70 rabbit farms in Spain by @lcanimal has exposed callous business-as-usual, and now major designers are denying any connection.

Proud to be an adjunct #professor at Parsons The New School! I'm teaching "Fashion & the Narrative" this semester. In addition to teaching about how fashion is used to tell stories, I'm interested in teaching about the real (and hidden) narratives carved out by the fashion industry upon workers, ecosystems, and animals.
