Fresno’s Chick fil A Protest – wrap up

It was warm, but not as hot as it had been all week. When I arrived a crowd was just starting to build but by the end of the protest there had been well over 200 hundred people participating. In a community like Fresno that says alot! We are an agricultural based community and tend to keep to ourselves. Things like gay marriage and equality are hot buttons even in here. The support for this event was amazing. It was electrical and energized. The best part is people on both sides were polite. Nothing got out of hand. – Audra Taylor
