The rise of activism has made it difficult for action-minded people to find out where and when people are gathering to raise their voices. The volume of protest events is large and increasing, and it’s hard to find a comprehensive list of events in one place. ProtestChicago.com is an online guide to Chicago-area protest events, striving to consolidate all area protests into one easy-to-use website.
ProtestChicago.com accepts any protest and rally event notifications from progressive organizations and lists them in a simple, clean format. Events are displayed in chronological order, and include all the relevant details — including links to organizers’ own promotional media –- with no analysis, opinion, or comment. Visit the site to find the protest nearest you or use the submission form to submit events that aren’t listed.
Content is limited to progressive public rallies and protests.
