Families Belong Together-Arizona

Our local media has captured photos and live footage of protests at various locations, statewide. As reported below, the turnout at the Capitol in Phoenix was estimated at 800, based solely on law enforcement estimates. You can view the coverage by the Arizona Republic at the link below.

While our numbers did not match those supporting #redfored, given our resources, I am impressed so many participated. Move On was instrumental in organizing these events and I wish to thank them for their efforts. It goes without saying that those showing up when the temperature is approaching 100 and walking from distant parking structures deserve a thank you.

10:55 a.m.: That's a wrap at the Capitol
The Phoenix protest has mostly wrapped up. Tents are down and speakers finished at the mini grandstand area by 10 a.m.
The Arizona Department of Public Safety was not able to provide an official estimate of crowd size, saying they typically get that information from a helicopter and are not sure whether they will know today.

A trooper estimated about 800 people came out to the Capitol protest.
