According to WGN9, competing rallies will be held today, Monday, (April 1).
The competing rallies are taking place due to Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx’s controversial decision to drop charges against actor, Jussie Smollett.
Foxx’s office shocked city officials and the Chicago Police Department by clearing Smollett in an allegedly phony, racist and homophobic attack back in January.
Still, Rev. Jesse Jackson plans to hold a rally in support of Foxx Monday morning at the Chicago Temple.
The Fraternal Order of Police, and other critics of Foxx, plan a competing demonstration, outside Foxx’s Loop office.
