More than 200 marchers walk from the Wingspan office along North Fourth Avenue to the Governor’s office at 400 W Congress St. in Tucson, Ariz., Friday, Feb. 21, 2014, to rally against the State Legislature’s passage of the “religious freedom bill.” Supporters of the rally, including elected officials and clergy, are urging Gov. Jan Brewer to veto the bill. (The sign at front of the protest reads, “Bash back.”) Local business leaders are also not in favor of the bill which is the first of its kind in the country citing it is bad for business development.
