You may use the following text to draft your email:

As your constituent, I am writing to respectfully urge your support for SB 313, the Circus Cruelty Prevention Act. This legislation is crucial for promoting animal welfare in California. Wild and exotic animals used in circuses experience horrific abuse and mistreatment, including cruel training methods to force animals to perform tricks on command and constant confinement. California is a leader in safeguarding the rights and welfare of animals. I ask that you support SB 313 to ban the use of wild and exotic animals in circuses.
