PARKING INSTRUCTIONS: There is parking in the garage under City Hall. As of late July, the entrance to the garage has moved to Guadalupe Street. As you head southbound, the entrance will be on your left, between 2nd Street and Cesar Chavez. Bring your ticket with you into City Hall, because you can get it validated in the room just outside the City Council chamber. If you get validated, you won't have to pay for parking. The lot fills up quick, get there early if you plan to park in the city hall lot.

On Thursday, August 6th, the Austin city council will vote on an ordinance to ban the use of bull hooks on elephants in circuses in our city.

Austin for Cruelty Free Entertainment needs you to show up at this meeting to show your support for this ordinance. This is the last hurdle we must pass in our 15-years-long campaign to protect elephants in circuses. You must be there!

We'll meet outside of city hall to hold a demonstration from 10:00am to 11:00am. We’ll have signs and no-bullhook stickers for your shirt. Also, our volunteers will be there to give you instructions how to register your YES vote at a kiosk inside of city hall. At 11:00am we'll head inside city hall, to the city council meeting room. There we'll continue to hold our signs and quietly show support for the ordinance. The more people we have wearing green shirts with stickers on them, the more of a statement we'll make.

You can help us right now by calling all our city council members to ask them to pass a bull hook ban with an effective date of 2015 that protects all elephants in Austin.

You can also email all city council members at once by using this emailing: https://austintexas.gov/email/all-council-members

Here's an example of what to say or write:
"Hello. My name is _____. I'm calling (writing) to ask Council Member ______________ to support the bull hook ordinance being proposed by Council Member Tovo at the August 6th city council meeting, and to ask for an amendment to include all elephants in Austin. Thank you."

Austin could join San Francisco, Los Angeles, Oakland, California and multiple cities and countries around the world, by banning the bull hook but we cannot do this without your support.
