See video messages from June 1, 2020 Village Board meeting.

At the June 1, 2020 Skokie Village Board meeting, Skokie Mayor George Van Dusen spoke on behalf of the entire Village Board about recent events in the United States, saying, "We are all heartsick over the events in Minneapolis, Minnesota and the passing of Mr. Floyd, as well as all the preceding incidents that have happened in the country. Skokie knows a little something about the dark force of prejudice. This is the town that was under assault famously by the American Nazi Party and later by the Ku Klux Klan. We believe in tolerance, equality and diversity."

See a video of Mayor Van Dusen’s full statement as well as comments from Village Manager John Lockerby about the Skokie Police Department’s June 2018 adoption of the Ten Shared Principles and continued use of them as they serve and protect the community each day.
