Cantore Park rally a peaceful precursor to violent protests in Aurora

Katie Dalton

CT’s Katie Dalton covers a rally at Cantore Park in Naperville on May 31, 2020. The rally was billed as a peaceful and family-friendly protest in response to the death of of George Floyd in Minneapolis. Cantore Park was chosen as the location for the rally as it was recently vandalized with hate speech messages.
Many of those who attended this rally went on to march toward the Aurora Police Department, where things became violent. For more on that part of the story, please read our story written by Amisha Sethi.
