Join us at the intersection of Greenleaf Ave. and Sheridan Rd. in the Rogers Park neighborhood of Chicago for a peaceful, interactive protest performance to demand justice for George Floyd. **This will be the final Honk for Justice protest** (for the time being). – if you haven’t had a chance to join, please do today!
Since June 2, we have been protesting at a different intersection on the North Side of Chicago from 4 – 6 pm, occupying the sidewalks, waving signs, chanting, making noise, and getting drivers to honk their car horns in support. This event is family friendly. Kids are more than welcome!
Bring signs and anything that makes noise (pots and pans, whistles, musical instruments). We have a limited stock of premade signs, as well as poster board and markers. We have water, snacks, masks, and basic first aid supplies on hand. Helium black balloons are also a great thing to bring for children (and even adults!). Sign suggestions include – “Black Lives Matter,” “Silence is Violence,” “Black is Beautiful,” and “Justice for George Floyd.”
Although we are not directly affiliated with the Black Lives Matter organization, we ask that you support the great work that they do to organize us all around racial justice. Donate at blacklivesmatter.com.
