RSVP: Hadassah Chicago-North Shore

Join Hadassah Chicago-North Shore as we experience a docent-led tour followed by a panel discussion on the exhibition Rise Up: Stonewall and the LGBTQ Rights Movement. This exhibition, brought to you by CNS Education & Advocacy Committees, explores the June 1969 police raid of the Stonewall Inn as the flashpoint that ignited the modern gay rights movement in the United States. In the fifty years since the Stonewall Uprising, America’s LGBTQ population has struggled for equal rights and representation under the law.

While grounded in the Stonewall Uprising, connections to Chicago and celebrations of LGBTQ+ pride in Chicagoland are on display, including images of the first gay pride parade in Chicago in 1970 and photographs of recent pride celebrations. The exhibition also features a gallery project showing the 400+ Chicago LGBTQ Hall of Fame inductees.
