It was pouring outside, and cold. Two key leaders and organizers were out of town. And they were operating in a city once called the slaughterhouse capital of the world. But three brave DxE Chicago activists still went out, and took a stand for the animals, as part of our Someone, Not Something day of action, with powerful words and images.
You'll be astonished by how the people in the restaurant responded.
William Lloyd Garrison, the pioneering antislavery activist, was once written to by an activist in another city in the early stages of the movement. The activist said that he was disheartened. He could only find two others interested in fighting for an end to human slavery.
Garrison's response (paraphrasing): "Even three people, if they are fighting for what is right, can change the world."
Thank you, DxE Chicago. Thank you, Teresa, Caesar, and Glenn. You make all of us better, and more brave.
