Centennial Park
2000 W First St
Fort Myers
Florida 33901

This is the local Fort Myers, Florida event. Main Statewide Tallahassee event here: https://www.facebook.com/events/482670665586588/?ti=icl

What if 10,000 of us stood in solidarity all across the state at the same time, for water?! We did it before, let’s do it again!

Make your voices heard on Saturday, October 20th at 2 pm! Join this peaceful demonstration as we read an open letter to elected officials and political candidates, letting them know that we demand action regarding the current environmental disaster occurring in the gulf.

On August 12th, 2018, Hands Along the Water succeeded in rallying almost 10,000 Floridians throughout the state to stand united in protecting water and marine life. We need your help in Tallahassee and across the state to make an even bigger statement to attract media attention and let politicians know that we will not accept further inaction.

Join us here in Fort Myers at Centennial Park for our local Hands Across the State event.

These local events are happening simultaneously and the leaders will be reading the same open statement that is being read in Tallahassee.

To join this event:
1. RSVP as “Going”
2. Share widely.

Things to remember for this event:
1. No signs or signage of any kind.
2. This is a peaceful event to show solidarity. This is NOT a protest.
3. Please wear a blue shirt to represent healthy water.
4. Please bring reusable water bottles to reduce waste.

We’re excited to see you on Saturday, October 20th!
