An Evanston Now reader says he spotted a poster from a white nationalist group on a traffic signal control box at the corner of Main Street and Chicago Avenue in Evanston this morning.
The poster is identified as a product of the American Identity Movement. The Southern Poverty Law Center says that’s a rebranding of a group formerly known as Identity Evropa, which was involved in organizing the deadly 2017 “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville, Virginia.
Placing any posters on city property in Evanston violates the city code. They can be reported as graffiti to the city’s 311 Center to have them removed.
