Show up for democracy: Naperville woman to protest every night at Riverwalk until mid-term election (Chicago Tribune)

Naperville resident Karen Peck knows what she’s doing from 6 to 7 every night until Nov. 6

Peck plans to be at the Naperville Riverwalk’s dandelion fountain with signs that say things like, “Reunite families now,” “45 traitor” and “Every child returned” for one hour every night until the mid-term election. She’s been doing it nightly since July 9 in an attempt to “show up for democracy” and “stand on every corner.”
