Laura Sturgeon Addresses Overflow Crowd at Women’s March

Newark, DE (January 20, 2018) – State Senate candidate Laura Sturgeon on Saturday urged attendees at the Delaware Women’s March in Newark to come out and vote this November and “fill the halls of Congress and the General Assembly with people who truly represent the diversity of our great country and our great state.”


Nearly 1,000 women, men, and children marched from the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Newark on Willa Road to Main Street and back, where several dignitaries addressed the overflow crowd.

“Let’s keep up the pressure to ensure equal pay for equal work,” said Sturgeon. “Let’s make sure we fully fund paid family leave and watch it spread to the private sector. Let’s give every child a level-paying field by robustly funding pre-k through 12 public education and making college affordable for everyone.”


Sturgeon currently teaches English and Spanish at Concord High School and has taught in Delaware public schools for 23 years. A graduate of Brandywine High School, she also earned a bachelor’s and master’s degree from the University of Delawre. Sturgeon is running for State Senator from the 4th district, which includes parts of Fairfax, Greenville, Hockessin and Pike Creek. She and her husband Bill reside in Woodbrook near St. Mary Magdalen parish, where they are both members.
