Lincoln Square vs. Hate

Lincoln Square neighbors will rally Sunday to denounce the latest incident of hate speech graffiti and fight back against the rising specter of white nationalism, both in our country and in our backyard.

Following the rally, over 4,000 "Hate Has No Home Here" and "Black Lives Matter" signs will be distributed throughout the neighborhood, drowning out the hateful rhetoric with messages of inclusiveness.



Community members are holding this rally and poster distribution to demonstrate that these messages of hate do not represent our community. Hate has no home in Lincoln Square and we will demonstrate that with message of love and solidarity.

"Lincoln Square has been made a target of hate, and we plan to fight back every time this happens," said Jason Rieger, Lincoln Square resident. "They can try to divide us by spray painting our sidewalks and signs, but here's the thing: for every sign they vandalize, we will put up a thousand new signs."

WHEN: Sunday, October 1, 11 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.
11 a.m. - gather and pass out signs for delivery
11:30 a.m. - rally begins with speakers
12:30 p.m. - rally concludes and Lincoln Square resident head out to distribute signs.

WHERE: Community members gather at Waters Elementary Soccer Field (4540 N. Campbell)

WHO: Lincoln Square community members angered and dismayed by the appearance of hate speech in Lincoln Square, in partnership with Indivisible Lincoln Square and Chicago Progress.

Speakers include:

* Jeff Zacharias and Bradd Easton, local gay couple whose home was vandalized with hate speech.

* Andre Vasquez, Chicago Progress.

* Ugo Okere, Fuerza Del Sol.
