On Saturday, January 21, Historic City News readers are invited to participate in free march and rally beginning at 12:00 p.m. with a gathering at Davis Park on the east side of the Bridge of Lions.
A local St Johns County group, Unity in Community, is a coalition united with the goal to build and sustain an inclusive proactive community that will protect our basic civil and human rights, our environment and our freedoms.
“The goal of this march and rally is to create overall solidarity. Our common focus is to maintain these basic rights and freedoms by marching together in unity for the community,” a spokesperson for the organization told local reporters.
Per the event planners, this will not be an “anti-Trump” march and rally, but rather one with a positive tone that brings together people representing a wide spectrum of concerns and issues.
