[ARCHIVED] 2020 Stand Against Racism - Now through April 26

The Stand Against Racism is an important annual event in Skokie to raise awareness about the negative impact of institutional and structural racism in the community.

Due to the Stay at Home Order and the priority of community safety, there will not be a physical gathering to represent the Stand Against Racism originally planned for April 23. It remains a priority of the Village of Skokie, and our community, to share in the work of eliminating racism.

This year, the Stand Against Racism campaign will be virtual and take place during the week of April 20 though 26, 2020. Instead of standing shoulder-to-shoulder on one day in support of eliminating racism, families, schools, businesses, faith-based groups and other organizations are invited to participate virtually the week of April 20.

Individuals in Skokie are asked to create signs, tell stories, engage in a project or read the Stand Against Racism pledge with others while practicing appropriate social distancing and post these activities on social media and use the hashtag #StandAgainstRacism. Photos and videos also can be emailed to info@skokie.org; a selection will be posted on the Village website and featured in future editions of SkokieNews.
