Walk For Freedom in St. George on Wednesday

For UtahStandardNews.com / April 14, 2020

All Utahns are invited to join us for a healthy Walk For Freedom on Wednesday, April 15, 2020, from 5-6 pm, to exercise our rights as American citizens.  Participants are encouraged to bring signs to express support for protecting our freedoms and getting Utahns back to work.

In compliance with the Utah Stay Home, Stay Safe directive and for the safety and comfort of all involved, the Walk For Freedom will obey public safety laws and follow the guidelines of avoiding gatherings of people, maintaining six feet distancing between individuals, and encouraging participants to wear masks and/or gloves if they feel it is necessary.  Rather than gathering in groups, the event will consist of individuals and/or families taking a healthy walk around the city block to express their support for freedom.

The purposes of the Walk For Freedom are to:

1) Assert our God-given, Constitutionally-protected rights, including freedom of speech, freedom of assembly, religious freedom, the right to contract, and the right to use our property as we see fit so long as we do not harm others,

2) Demand that Utah’s state and local legal restrictions on these rights be lifted so that, with appropriate precautions taken, Utahns can get back to work immediately, and

3) Encourage all Utahns to continue to exercise wisdom and safe health practices, including proper sanitation, staying in when sick or at risk, and social distancing and wearing masks so long as needed to prevent the further spread of illnesses.

The Washington County Walk For Freedom will be held at the Washington County Administration Building, beginning at the corner of Tabernacle Street and 200 East in St. George.  Participants are invited to drop off a copy of their petitions (copy available below) or letters to elected officials and take a healthy walk around the block.  Drivers are invited to drive by and give the walkers a healthy shout of encouragement.  Parking is curbside and in the nearby County Building parking lot or the public parking structure at Tabernacle and Main Street.

Those who cannot participate due to illness or other risk factors should stay home and can participate by sending a petition or letter directly to Governor Herbert or other officials and by posting on social media.

Utahns across the State are invited to join us in the Walk For Freedom on April 15th at 5 pm in your local communities at appropriate locations.
