Chicago group educates on Independence Day 2011
A dozen members hold signs during rush hour
About a dozen of us were at the Loyola EL stop in Chicago on Friday evening, May 20, from 5 until about 6:30 p.m. The location is a place where car traffic gets bottlenecked as people head to the northern suburbs coming off of Lake Shore Drive, so there's a lot of volume and people have to slow down as they pass. The energy was good - lots of positive response from people passing by.
We had a couple of people in orange jumpsuits and hoods, and lots of signs.
