Chicago’s “Families Belong Together” rally - June 30th, 2018

Crowds poured into a blistering hot Daley Plaza for Chicago’s “Families Belong Together” rally. Perhaps the heat and humidity kept turnout down a little, but by 11:00am the public square was packed with committed demonstrators of all ages and signages. With the family separation drama playing out along our southern border, a larger contingent of religiously motivated protestors were present than I remember photographing at previous anti-administration demonstrations. These recent outrages, and disturbing events at the Supreme Court, lent the gathering a sense of great urgency, mixed with more than a little anger and apprehension.
