Ringling Bros. Circus Protest

The Ringling Bros. and Barnum and Bailey circus came to Birmingham this week and we handed out about 1,000 leaflets and protested at 8 out of the 10 shows. I've had the privilege of spending the last 5 days with an incredible group of compassionate people and have made some wonderful new friends.

Overall the week went great. We've opened some people's eyes to the abuse and exploitation and have changed people's minds about the use of animals in the circus. We had a lot of negative responses and ignorant comments, but the good outweighed the bad.

Thank you to everyone that participated! We couldn't have done it without you!


  1. Awesome!
    Where did you get the leaflets? Did you make them yourself?
    I might be interested in this when they roll into my town.

  2. Hey Cindy! I got the leaflets from peta. If you're interested, speak with Heather ( and she'll help you out. If there's anyone already organizing a protest in your town she will most likely know about it. Hope this helps and wish you the best!

  3. Awesome job!!! wish I could've come though...i would have really liked to help you guys out!
