Chicago Tribune ———— By Nara Schoenberg ————Mon., June14, 2021

Drag queens lead hundreds through North Side streets in a Black Lives Matter protest calling for an end to racism and police brutality.

The second annual Drag March for Change, led by drag performers of color, built on last year’s demands for more gigs, inclusion and respect in the primarily white, male, cisgender Northalsted neighborhood, which is also known as Boystown.

But leaders also called for Chicago to spend less on policing and more on community groups and social services;

for attention to the high homicide rate among Black transgender women; for more representation in leadership positions in Northalsted;

and for the Empowering Communities for Public Safety ordinance, a police reform bill that would set up a citizen oversight board.

“There will be no progress without struggle,” organizer Jo MaMa told the crowd as it prepared to march.

About ron abbass

Because of my last name, there are some who might think I'm a Muslim. I'm an older student of the bible and I regard myself as Christian-other. That is, I was baptized in a Torah-keeping assembly. I'm one who tries his best to follow Yayshua, the Messiah (Christ) by keeping the commandments, the dietary laws, the weekly Sabbath and the annual Sabbaths (Holy Days) instituted and ordained by the great I AM, the Creator-God of Israel. I reject the holidays and festivals invented by the Roman church. Truth-seeking is my present passion. Presently, I do a lot of research into the World Wars, the mass media, the Holocaust, Zionism, Health Issues, 9/11 and the power brokers who are behind the New World Order that is gradually being established mainly in the Western Nations. Many prognosticators (prophets) both secular and religious are warning us that we are living "On the Eve of Destruction" - the last days. There's a very good chance a nuclear tsunami will eventually visit many nations. Peace and blessings to all who love the truth and hate the lies.
