Thousands of protestors, dozens of partner organizations, and local leaders gathered at Esplanade Park in Fort Lauderdale Sunday as part of a national We The People rally and march, hosted by the AIDS Healthcare Foundation. A spokesperson for the organization said that clickers at the event counted 4,200 marchers, who braved the midday rain to make their voices heard. Sunday’s South Florida march was one of four happening across the country through AHF. We The People marches and rallies were also held in California, South Carolina, and Texas. Attendees said they wanted to make their voices heard on several issues, particularly those centered on civil rights. The marches came on the heels of several Supreme Court decisions making headlines, including one in which the court ruled that a Christian wedding website designer did not have to extend her services to same-sex couples. Sunday’s march also happened just one day after new laws took effect in Florida, including HB 543, no longer requiring Floridians to have a government-issued permit to carry a concealed weapon. A small group of counter-protesters could be seen in the park, as well as during the march in the city streets, donning shirts that read “Guns Save Lives” and carrying a flag that said “Come and Take It” with the image of a gun. But protests remained peaceful, with security and Fort Lauderdale Police also in attendance.
