Please join members of Circus Reform Yes! this Friday, June 29, at 9 a.m. when City Council member Ralph Remington introduces the Animal Protection Amendment, which would help ban wild animal circuses in Minneapolis.
Wild animals in circuses are forced to perform tricks under the threat of punishment and spend their entire lives confined to cages or chained. Animal abuse is common in circuses.
If passed, this amendment will keep wild-animal circuses and their cruelty out of Minneapolis for good! Your attendance at the meeting is needed in order to show widespread support for the Animal Protection Amendment. If we fill the room, we’ll make it much harder for council members to vote against this humane legislation.
What: City council meeting—introduction of the Animal Protection Amendment
Where: City Hall, Downtown Minneapolis, 350 S. Fifth St., Rm. 304
When: Friday, June 29, 9 a.m.
Activists will meet in Downtown Minneapolis—on the third floor of City Hall—at 9 a.m. T-shirts and stickers will be handed out before you enter the chambers at 9:30 a.m. Public comments will not be heard at this meeting. The amendment will be voted on, and it will either advance to a committee and a public hearing or be denied a hearing.
Let your elected officials know that animals matter and that you expect your city’s laws to protect them. Let’s send them a message, and let’s pack the room!
