If you'd like to help out elephants and other animals being abused and exploited by Ringling Bros and Barnum & Bailey Circus, please join a protest.
Following is the full schedule of protests for the San Francisco Bay Area, Summer of 2014.

If you've never been to a circus protest before, you might be wondering what to expect. I made a video just for you that I hope answers your questions. If not, please ask in the comments section below or on my YouTube page.
Hope to see you out there. Thanks for helping elephants!
