The Illinois Indigenous Peoples Day Coalition will host a news conference and protest at Pottawattomie Park at 10 a.m. Monday to “escalate actions against Cook County Board members who are clinging to a racist past by refusing to celebrate Indigenous Peoples’ day instead of the man responsible for rape, murder, genocide and the origins the trans-Atlantic slave trade.” Speakers will include Cook County Comm. Brandon Johnson (D-1), Ald. Maria Hadden (49), Rep. Delia Ramirez (D-Chicago), Rep. Kelly Cassidy (D-Chicago) and Sen. Mike Simmons (D-Chicago). The event will be streamed on Facebook Live.
