Chicago Settles $250K Case to Allow Evangelism in Millennium Park

Emily Belz of Christianity Today reports, “The city of Chicago has settled with four Wheaton College students who were prohibited from evangelizing in the city’s Millennium Park in 2018. The case pushed the city to change park regulations to allow evangelizing and other public speech.” Under the new rules, evangelists will be allowed to proselytize near the Bean, a common tourist attraction in the park, but still cannot distribute literature there. Caeden Hood, one of the plaintiffs, said, “I’m thankful that the gospel is going to be preached in Millennium Park again.”
