What’s Legal Protest in Chicago? Know your rights!

Deep Green Resistance Chicago (DGRC) is hoping many will be coming to Chicago for some of the many protests planned in May.  Hopefully, if you are in the area, you have a chance to check out this event.

“Thousands of demonstrators are expected to converge upon the City of Chicago in May for the NATO Summits. The ACLU, as part of our commitment to defending civil liberties and the First Amendment, will be offering a forum on protesters’ rights.

Join ACLU of Illinois staff attorney Karen Sheley for an overview of the rules and regulations about protesting in Chicago. Learn about your rights under the First Amendment, and how to protest safely and legally in the City of Chicago.”

Wednesday, April 25th 6:30 pm Chicago Temple 77 West Washington Chicago, IL

This event is free and open to the public, but we request an RSVP.
