Last week, the New College Leadership Alliance organized a demonstration to support the Sarasota Women’s Health Clinic, which is repeatedly harassed by anti-choice picketers who with enormous graphic posters. The group mobilized over 40 pro-choice activists who dwarfed the small gathering of anti-choice picketers. Members Carly Earnshaw and Britt Dunn were interviewed by the Sarasota News Network, which aired the pro-choice demonstration as the top news story of the day! The group will continue to work with the Clinic and mobilize community support to send a strong message to the that harassment and violence against women’s health clinics will not be tolerated.
