Circus Cruelty Awareness Walk

Join with Compassion Speaks Meetup and raise awareness about the cruelty and abuse that circus animals endure.

This will be the first of many walks we do to bring awareness and deter people from purchasing circus tickets.  We have an elephant costume, a ringleader costume and many signs.  We are meeting a Luna's and will walk up and down the side walk.  South Blvd is a very busy street and at Christmas time, we should be able to reach thousands.  Deterring ticket sales is the only way we can stop Ringling Brothers Circus.  Please come out for as long as you can and help make a difference for these animals.

The circus will be in Charlotte Jan 29-Feb 2 doing 8 shows.  We will also be there to show our support at the Time Warner Cable Arena.  Those Meetups to be posted soon.

    Hi Everyone. I am so excited about tomorrow's walk to deter ticket sales for the upcoming circus to Charlotte. It looks like we will have somewhere between 12-20 people as I have advertised this on other groups, facebook, etc, it is hard to know for sure. The weather is going to be great. YAH!!!

    Thank you all for taking time out of your day to make a difference to these captive animals that continue to go through hell on earth. If if weren't for people like you being active, these animals wouldn't have any hope. I have been looking for a photographer to take some pictures (pro bono) so if you know anyone, please invite them. This will be a kid friendly event.

    Thanks,

    Karen

      Hi Meg, we will be there approx 2.5 hours, maybe longer if the others want to stay. If you could get there about 2.30 you could be there for at least an hour.
