CHICAGO — The city of Chicago is partnering with each of the city’s professional sports teams for a new campaign.
Mayor Lori Lightfoot announced the “We Are Not Playing” initiative Monday morning.
“We see a tiny pinprick of light at the end of the tunnel,” Lightfoot said at an empty Soldier Field.
The Chicago Bears, Blackhawks, Bulls, Cubs, White Sox, Fire, Red Stars and Sky have signed on to the campaign. Their message is, “We’re not playing, so neither should you.”
Lightfoot hopes it will remind people to follow the state’s stay-at-home order.
