Women Plan Commemorative Walk Jan. 20 in Highlands County

Organizers of a Women’s Walk in Highlands County Jan. 20 are seeking participants from the region.

The event is planned on the anniversary of the women’s march in Washington D.C. last January.

It will occur around key intersections along U.S. 27 in Avon Park, Sebring and Lake Placid from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m.

The Avon Park event will be held at the Highway 64 intersection, which is the road leading to downtown Avon Park.

Participants are encouraged to bring signs. One of the issues organizers want to emphasize is environmental justice.

Following the walk, the group plans to hold a rally at the Women’s Club of Sebring, 4260 SW Lakeview Dr. at 12:30 p.m.
