Equality Florida had a wonderful time at Charlotte County Pride last weekend! The event kicked off with a volunteer training on Friday in the beautiful Laishley Park. Our volunteers heard about Equality Florida’s work and practiced canvassing for the next day. We shared our stories, experiences, and prepared for a busy Saturday!
Saturday’s event included lots of live music, performances, food trucks, and pro-LGBT booths. During the festival, Equality Florida was proud to connect with individuals and local businesses in the area. We had the honor of announcing our work on the stage, to encourage each attendee to engage in the fight for full LGBT equality! By continuing the conversation and momentum surrounding marriage equality and with the help of our stellar volunteers, we collected over 350 pledges in support of full equality for all LGBT Floridians.
All around, it was a great weekend. In its third year, Charlotte County was truly beaming with pride. We were happy to engage the South Florida community in the fight for equal protections for all LGBT Floridians. Thank you to the pride organizers and our volunteers for an unforgettable event!
