We will be gathering and leading a car caravan to demand that all politicians (Trump, Biden, Pritzker, Lightfoot, etc) do not reopen schools in person if it isn’t safe, scientific, racially just and fully funded.

Join us at City Hall at 12 noon for a people’s festival about a just Chicago with the school our students deserve, adequate and affordable housing for all, and more investments in the things that will allow our communities to thrive, not more police.

Car Caravan will meet at 1901 W Carroll Avenue at 11 am and will leave to join the rally downtown at 11:30am
