Pfleger Calls For Dan Ryan Shutdown To Protest Gun Violence

Fr. Michael Pfleger, pastor of St. Sabina’s Church in the Auburn-Gresham neighborhood, announced more details of his plan to shut down the Dan Ryan Expressway in July to protest gun violence. Earlier this month he called on attendees of the annual peace march in the neighborhood to join him on July 7th to shut down the expressway. “We will disrupt the flow of traffic because gun violence has disrupted the lives of thousands Chicagoans,” Pfleger wrote Monday on Facebook. “We want our city to act vigorously to bring about systemic change and real solutions....for our children!” Protesters are expected to assemble at 79th and the Dan Ryan at 9:45AM.
