Chicago CHAPTER

Chicago is a large and growing chapter of the Direct Action Everywhere network primarily led by womyn and featuring a wide diversity of activists spanning different ages and backgrounds. The Chicago chapter is best known for their news-breaking disruptions of political rallies across the midwest, initiating DxE-led slaughter truck stop actions, as well as being a thriving center for music and art inspired by topics of animal liberation. In 2016, Chicago started its first DxE Activist House, which has been keystone for the community in providing affordable housing for activists, hosting weekly community events, serving as an activist training hub, hosting out-of-town activists, and fostering rescued animals. Chicago anticipates continued growth within their activist community and has plans to open additional activist houses.
