All around the world, cities, states, and countries are passing laws to make it illegal to use wild and exotic animals for entertainment, in circuses, in any type of performance. This is news to celebrate! In my newest article for LiveKindly (“Oakland Just Banned Exotic Animals in Entertainment”) and in this short video below, I explain:
- why getting involved in local politics is incredibly effective (more effective than complaining about national politics)
- shaping compassion for animals in local officials means they’ll carry it with them as they move onto other positions of power
- how a local municipal ordinance closed down a huge commercial animal enterprise
Also, this story is an example of how one person has an impact if we use our skills, passion, and time to speak up, speak out, and act on behalf of compassion and animals.
