Hate Has No Home in Woodstock

  • Woodstock Square Historic District 227 West Judd Street Woodstock, IL, 60098 United States (map)

This is a counter rally to the "Spirit of America" tea party rally happening on the square 12pm-3:00pm

We will focus on postive messages, primarily on the idea that Hate Has No Home in our community. If you plan on bringing a sign please ensure they are respectful and positive *NO Anti-Trump signs* we want to spread love and peace, not animosity. Stick to signs that highlight your beliefs not signs that are against theirs.

The rally is taking place in the park in the center of the square we will be walking counter clockwise silently around the outer sidewalks of the square (note we have to walk, Woodstock has an ordinace that does not allow us to block the sidewalks but as long as we are walking we will be fine). *We will not engage them or shout chants* When you first get to the square go to the old courthouse that is on the north end of the square. I will be there handing out buttons the say "Hate Has No Home in Woodstock".

Our goal is to peacefully show that these Tea Party people do not represent us. We need to show respect and peace. "When they go low, We go high" - Michelle Obama
