Please join the Northwest Side Coalition Against Racism & Hate, for this free, family-friendly event – Peace In The Preserves: A Community Call to Reject Racism and Celebrate Diversity – in response to the hate crime that occurred at Caldwell Woods on Chicago’s Far Northwest Side last month.
The Peace in the Preserves event will feature family-friendly activities, speakers, music, and beverages for purchase. The event will culminate with a community-wide call for unity, celebration of cultural diversity, and rejection of racism. The Forest Preserves of Cook County, a sponsoring organization for this event, will host activities for families/children including free face painting, “tree cookie” painting to create a “Peace Tree,” and guided nature play. There will also be a performance by the Jesse White Tumblers, sponsored by Illinois Secretary of State, Jesse White.
Proceeds from fundraising efforts will benefit a GoFundMe created by The Puerto Rican Agenda of Chicago for Hurricane Maria relief work (https://tinyurl.com/PeaceInThePreserves).
