Event Details

Golden Gate Fields continues to race horses to death and the people continue to call for its closure! Please join us in protesting against the East Bay’s only CAFO and its abusive, exploitative practices. After the protest, around 2:15 pm, those who’d like to are invited to take part in an untimed 5k run / walk / roll around Golden Gate Fields to remember that we humans can consent to running a race, but the horses do not consent to what they’re forced into.

Thank you!
