Elephants DC will begin assembling before the Chinese Embassy onsite at 11:30 a.m. The march will be followed by a low-key rally at the center of International Plaza at which we will call for the enactment of a total and complete ivory sales ban worldwide now.
Bring thought-provoking posters, banners, a drum if you have one and dress in decorative ele gear if possible. Dogs are also welcome. We will have plenty of placards to share with participants on site.
We will advocate for the end of all wild-caught elephant trade to China and elsewhere out-of-Africa.
We will speak up for the cessation of all cruelty against elephants and fellow endangered species.
We will demand the full restoration of Appendix I standing for all African elephants at the onset of the CITES convention in South Africa as world leaders gather to conduct a new trade agreement impacting endangered, threatened and vulernable species worldwide.
Join us! All are welcome. Family friendly. Dog friendly.
