More than 200 marched from Lashley Park in Punta Gorda to the northbound bridge on U.S. 41 for the 2020 Women’s March.
Two political candidates, Allen Ellison and David Jones, joined the Charlotte County Democrats. Ellison is running for U.S. Congress in District 17, and David Jones in Florida House District 75.
“Women and men are marching to draw attention to the willful destruction of citizen’s rights — civil rights, workers’ rights, LGBTQ rights, migrant rights and women’s reproductive rights.”Teresa Jenkins, Charlotte County Democratic Executive Committee Chair
