The Wednesday before Thanksgiving is the biggest bar night of the year. Today a big news story hit regarding a sexual assault that happened outside of a Chicago bar and was caught on tape. We have decided to use this opportunity to stand against an industry that fosters a culture of sexual assault with their refusal to take action.

We need your help!

We will be staging a protest in a popular bar district Wednesday afternoon in River North. Our goal is to send a message to the bar industry that, by choosing inaction, they are siding with rape culture and oppression. We are not targeting any specific bar but rather the industry as a whole. Since it is a very busy district, we will have security with us.

There will be material for creating signs available all at our office at 180 N Michigan Ave. Suite 600. Then we will gather at 18 W Hubbard Street in Chicago from 4-6PM for the protest!
