 SKOKIE, IL
Skokie Cares is a group of eight Skokie organizations that are working together to support all of our residents and help to build a better Skokie.

We are raising money to purchase 3,000 lawn signs and 5,500 buttons that proclaim that everyone is welcome here!

Why?  We were concerned about reports that some of our residents were being bullied.  These residents were told to go back to the country they came from, or were yelled at for wearing hijabs.  These residents were feeling anxious and unwelcome in our community.

Please support our fund raising effort and visit our website at skokiecares.org to learn more.

For our community:
Skokie Public Library            Skokie Park District
Village of Skokie                      Turning Point
School District 219                Niles Township Gov't
School District 73.5               Youth & Opportunity United

I'm all for this initiative. I attended the rally as well as a couple other programs. Skokie is a wonderful place to have grown up in and still live in. Skokie prides itself on its ethic and cultural diversity and rightfully so. I have to ask, though, are these 3000 signs recyclable? reusable? and/or sustainable?

Cultural diversity is why I chose Skokie when I bought my house here nearly 20 years ago.
