UPDATE: The protest in Wilmington was very peaceful today. Thank you to our Wilmington residents for showing your tolerance to the opinions of others, and to the protestors who showed us that your message can be conveyed without violence.


We have received information that an individual is posting on Facebook to organize a peaceful protest against racism for 11:00 am tomorrow in the area of E. Baltimore St & S. Washington St.

This person has asked (in the social media invitation that was posted) that those who gather remain peaceful and respectful. Similar protests occurred today in Plainfield and Oswego and there were no problems.

We will monitor the situation and respond as necessary should any violations of ordinances or statutes occur.

Please pray for peace in the rest of our country.
