Title

Board Meeting, [30] July 5, 1977, Citizens' Comments: Ruth Schaffner

Abstract

Ruth Schaffner praises the Village Trustees for preventing the neo-Nazis from marching in Skokie. "It is not a matter of free speech. It is a matter of marching in Nazi uniforms with swastikas and spreading hate amongst our community." She urges members of the community to demonstrate peacefully against Nazism and hatred. She goes on to say, that this, "is not an attack on Jews only, it is an attack on the existence all minorities in Skokie, in Illinois, and in our United States of America."
