PHOENIX (KSAZ) -

Hundreds took the streets of downtown Phoenix Saturday for what they call a "moral march".

They're calling on state lawmakers to put more focus on the economy, education and equality.

"We believe in an Arizona that values all residents not just certain portions of our residents," said Grant Miller.

Hundreds rallied at the Civic Space Park this morning before taking their signs and hitting the streets.

"The message of this march is we believe we can build a better Arizona than what we currently have with the extreme legislation that's been coming out of the state legislature its time for Arizonians to say enough is enough we love our state, and we can build a better Arizona," said Miller.

Grant Miller helped organize the march, he says the three points of focus are economy education and equality but many activists focused on equality.

"This is an effort to make sure we stay awake we don't become complacent don't go back to sleep," he said.

While rights for the LGBTQ community are not the only focus at the rally, activists say they've seen more people rallying since the proposal of SB1062 about a month ago.

"I think it's going to continue happening the people of Arizona are tired of discrimination, and they're tired of stupid legislation, that marginalizes and oppresses it's citizens," said Jo Beaudry.

"This was done by grassroots organizers not an organization, or anything of that nature, so this gives me hope that this is the year that things are gonna change," said rep. Ruben Gallego.

The people who walked Saturday say they'll walk year after year until they see the changes they believe the state deserves.
