Title

Board Meeting, [14] June 20, 1977, Citizens' Comments: Ruth Schaffner

Abstract

Ruth Schaffner, a 21-year resident of Skokie, congratulates the Village government for their actions related to the attempted neo-Nazi march and speaks out against prejudice. She states that allowing the neo-Nazis to come to Skokie on July 4th, "is not a matter of free speech, it is a matter of permitting a party to march in Nazi uniforms with swastikas and distributing hate literature and undermining our very existence." She asks that the Village government prevent the July 4th march by the neo-Nazis.
