Disability Equality -- Long Overdue!
Date: July 21, 2018
PLEASE READ OUR MISSION STATEMENT
Help Plan the 2018 Parade!
GOOD NEWS! The Park District will provide shuttle buses from Daley Plaza to Soldier Field! Look for the sign to the buses.
Our annual OPEN MIC EVENT will happen on July 20, from 6:00 PM to 9:00PM. Click here for a printable copy of the event details.
The parade route will gather in the block behind the City library along Plymouth Ct., march over to Dearborn, then north to Daley Plaza--the same route it has used for the last several years. The after-parade celebration will be at Daley Plaza as in the past.
Program packets will be mailed before the parade day.
