Honk for Justice Chicago has been making noise for George Floyd since June 2 in north side Chicago neighborhoods. Their regular schedule is Uptown on Mondays, West Town on Tuesdays, Logan Square on Wednesdays, Lincoln Square on Thursdays and Lincoln Park on Fridays. See their website for info about participating in the performance/demonstrations to demand justice for the murder of George Floyd and police reform. Honk for Justice provides a brief training at the beginning of each session plus they have water, snacks, masks, and basic first aid supplies on hand. They ask that participants bring signs and anything that makes noise such as pots and pans, whistles and musical instruments.
