Vigil for Democracy
On Saturday, four groups organized the “Good Trouble Candlelight Vigil for Democracy” in Downtown Naperville. The vigil marked the one year passing of Representative John Lewis. The group who gathered also asked for action from Congress to pass the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act, DC Statehood, and the For the People Act. The around 120 people there took a moment of silence for John Lewis before crossing the bridge with candles in hand. The League of Women Voters Naperville, DuPage County NAACP, Illinois N.O.W, and the National Council of Jewish Women Chicago North Shore organized the event.
Kerwell & Nike Stores
Kerwell, a CBD store, had a ribbon cutting in Downtown Naperville last Thursday. Located at 8 W. Jefferson Ave., the store offers an array of cannabidiol products for community members and even their pets. A Nike store will also open this year at the former Talbots store at 217 S. Main Street, with an expected opening in mid-September. To learn about more businesses in Downtown Naperville you can check out their website.
