Circus Protest

Circus Protest is a campaign of CompassionWorks International, a nonprofit animal advocacy organization. Our goal is to empower individuals to make change for animals confined to circus life in their communities. We believe in the power of community, in friends educating friends, and neighbors sharing with neighbors to create a brighter day for all animals.


We also believe that focusing on compassionate, peaceful, educational actions to combat circus cruelty is the strongest path forward to putting a permanent end toward animal abuse. Ask yourself: when was the last time you truly listened to someone who was yelling at you, or belittling you? When was the last time you felt comfortable taking the advice of someone who was behaving in a threatening manner, or who was making you or your children uneasy? The answer is....never.


The strategies for change-making utilized in CWI's Circus Protest campaign are proven by practice and through research to be the most effective.  After reading through all of the advice offered on our website, we welcome you to contact us for any and all help you may need in setting up your protest. Our goal is to help you do your good work for animals in the best, most effective, most efficient, most professional way possible.
