"Reporters grace hawk and christine fernando covered protests in chicago. This weekend. We spoke yesterday about what they've seen on the ground. Here's that conversation grace christine. What are some standout moments for you from your protest coverage before the big protests last night. The stan moment for me was public speaking with mothers other young people who've died in police shootings in chicago. I feel like this. The adam toledo shooting has dredged up a lot of bad memories for the city because you know police shootings on our new thing to chicago at all. I'm so spoke thursday night with some of them others. I spoke with the mother's of michael wesley and darius necks and they were telling me how much it hurt for them to still be standing there with the same message today. They felt like they had justice for their children. Then then they wouldn't still have to be there. Protesting that day also had a lot of messages of solidarity for adam's mother said that she's a sister now and that they were going to fight for her to So that for the smaller protests before last night those those kind of the stand out moment for me last night. One of the things that stood out to me most was just kind of the calls for solidarity between black and brown communities was a huge part of it though is a lot of no chance leg. Black and brown united will never be divided. That i heard a lot that was written on a lot of signs as well So there's just a lot of seeing people from communities of color like coming together invoicing those support for atom. Seeing the families who also lost loved ones to see pd in some capacity so last night at the large protests. There were a couple of other families there as well as the family Of a twenty two year. Old man. Anthony alvarez who died a couple of days after adam was killed also in a foot chase and his family said that by seeing adams video The police bodycam video of atoms shooting. They were able to have the strength to come out to protest and speak out about what happened to anthony and just seeing them all standing up there kind of holding back tears. There were at least seven of them and his cousin was the one who spoke. There was a toddler standing with them. There were two other kids up there and they were just holding these pictures of them with anthony and so just really feeling this entire community morning. Not just adam to leto but all these other people that chicago has lost in recent days in recent years and that has always been a facet of chicago protests and demonstrations is not just talking about one specific loss but also how communities have affected for a very long time We even had from. Jon burge tortured victim last night too. So people and organizers really trying to draw attention to along legacy of hurt by chicago police department going off. christine's point about Just solidarity organizers were mostly youth who were leading this which is common in chicago and they're very overt about talking about solidarity when we got to the end last night after walking for about four hours circling back to logan square park. One of the last things in organizers said before telling everyone buddy up go home find someone to give you. A ride was to say all of our latino brothers and sisters here look around and see how many black and indigenous folks came out to support you And that was this really like capstone moment. I think of the night before everyone started to disperse and it was only after that that there were some skirmishes with chicago. Police officers. Tell us about the crowd that gathered friday night. Yeah i think. I was struck by the mothers and fathers carrying toddlers mo we. We marched for hours And so just to see these. These families carrying their children walking hand in hand with their children. Children holding photos of people they have lost unfortunately is not an uncommon sight. Here in chicago but christine. I know you talked a lot with Mothers and fathers personally definitely. I think it was definitely a moment. Where a lot of mothers and fathers were trying to educate their children about what was going on like the reality of police shootings in chicago. Like i interviewed one man who had his five-year one of five year olds on his shoulders. Who was carrying assigned that he made and then another one was holding his hand and who is also carrying another sign. Kind of asking him about how he's been talking to his five year olds about you know. Something is a very heavy so he was talking about. How how it has been difficult. How of course he leaves out. Some details. wants to wait till they're older until like giving them the full reality but from a young age she really wants them to understand these issues of justice in the community. There's also one mother who i spoke with kind of heard her walking around with her daughter and explaining all the signs because daughter couldn't read yet so she was reading all the signs to then. The daughter was like what does that one say. And like why why did you. Why are they saying s. Why are they saying that so she. The mom was like really taking the time to like explain to her child. What each of these times said and what they meant and the story behind them as well so those really like interesting powerful to see schorr. What are protesters saying about the bodycam footage and statements made by police before that footage was released. Yeah so christina. And i put out a piece last night Before the the protest about the time line of how that city and police narrative has changed since march twenty nine th and that hours after the shooting took place march twenty ninth Chicago police label this incident and armed. Confrontation we now know from the video. That while adam may have had a gun at some point that night as he was running from the officer thirty four year. Old eric stolman.

The 19-year evolution of a retail florist with Kelly Marie Thompson of Chicago-based Fleur Inc.

"I open to flourish in two thousand and two. So that means we're just about to approach our nineteen th anniversary so we're really excited about that It won't be a normal celebration obviously but We're still really excited Yeah i opened. You know back then. I was twenty two years old fresh out of college and studied history. And i had worked in a grocery store So that's where. I really learned my background on floral. And you know. I learned just things like how to pronounce l. strom area or burnham you but i didn't have a huge training or background on. It came to design outside of my art history degree and painting degree. That's just be influencing you all the time just that discipline just cover different medium. Now i do exactly and it's It's really shaped my understanding for color and depth and texture. And i've i bring that with me every every single design Yes i opened up I had a small storefront. I really thought we were going to be a bucket flower shop on because you know boutique florist. Were really thing that long ago at least not in chicago. There were a few but it wasn't as popular of business as it has certainly grown into. No i and i do want to ask you. What do you mean by boutique because Would you know that's a term that means probably a lot different you know definition than what it is today so yeah. That's a great great question. So when i when. I came up with the idea of opening our retail boutique. I knew i wanted us all bucket flowers sort of just hand ties. Ready to go But i definitely wanted to include. Heavy selection of gifts lifestyle goods Even back you know eight nineteen years ago. I always knew that it wasn't just about flowers for me. It was always about bringing people together and gatherings and parties so as we've grown throughout the years our collections have grown and our offerings have grown. And when i'm when i'm purchasing for our retail. I always have in the back of my mind. Like how can this assist in a gathering. How can this assist in communicating and being a part of. You know the other person that i'm inviting into my life. You know Every day so it's it's really You know obviously weddings and special events or celebrations. That bring people together but are boutique is equally as important for that experience as well. So in your product mix you have a more lifestyle items that you think kind of support your flowers and vice versa. Exactly yeah lots of serving pieces for dinner parties A couple of years ago brought in fine jewelry so we now sell engagement rings which is really special part of the process. Wow oh my gosh. That's a that's an endeavor was a scary thing. It was a goal for a very long time of mine. But it's always been a dream to have somebody start their entire process of getting engaged in having flair as part of that story All the way through the last dance when we're able to help service their floral to for their wedding. Oh my goodness so. Are you in the same retail space when you first opened nineteen years ago or have you found expanded on. Come out front. Yeah we've moved twice actually Our first location the building had sold so we had to shift out. That was after. I believe three years and then we moved. We were in our second location for ten And then the landlord actually had just kind of decided they were going to move into a different direction. And honestly at that time. I really thought about closing. It was not my decision to move and there was not a lot of Opportunity in the neighborhood that we were in that i saw that was the right fit for us so i had to make a really big decision of kind of go bigger. Go home If we wanted to continue our retail and special events. And i'm really glad that i kept going with it i. It came very close to say goodbye and to the retail side thing. Oh yeah i was really just. I had a big heart to heart and I drove up to michigan for the night. I'm not too far from us in chicago and drink a little too much wine one night and wrote down all the pros and cons idea. I woke up the next morning. Just ready to go just ready to sign the new lease. I'm so we've actually. We started out with eighteen hundred square feet and we now are between both are retail and our studio. We are thirty three hundred square feet. They're kind of adjacent to each other. Exactly what is it in chicago. The logan square neighborhood on and we've always been in that neighborhood. I was really drawn. I lived in the time when we opened and i was always drawn to it because events cultural diversity and very strong artistic community that both of those still

"Picking data that you think might be cool as technologist. Yeah. Right. So I mean, there's a lot of information out there, and you gave the example of Tracy Cisco, and I've talked to him a lot over at the Chicago Justice project, and that's an example of this organization that he started that uses a lot of information. And so in Chicago, you think about all the creativity that goes on in the city like this and people have their own projects startups have their own needs for data. And it's not like everyone knows how to do that. So this is a place. A place like the shy hack night here Logan square where people can come and just get advice. Listen to people who do this sort of thing. And and really a lot of it is just the networking aspect. Yeah. I would say that's true. There's a lot of good that happens when a wide variety of people get together in at the at the main event, there's usually like around one hundred sometimes as many as one hundred twenty or thirty people that come the neighborhood of is we've been averaging around thirty people most nights, and it's a bit of a smaller group, but sometimes allows for more informal conversation and field people feel more comfortable connecting with each other. And the whole idea especially in the neighborhood has had a wide variety of different people come in and get exposed to have people in tech be exposed to other people who may be their neighbors and also have people from the community common. Learn a little bit more of the nuts and bolts of like what it looks like to do that type of work whether as a hobby or as a career is there a trend. I mean, is there something that you see more people come to a night like this and ask around about or hey, I'm in the neighborhood. I'm in the market. For fill in the blank. Is there something that is trending right now when you see who's coming to a night like this shack night here, Logan square. I don't know. That's hard for me to say. I might take the question a little too literally. Because of my training is a data scientists but trending, right? Yeah. I mean, we've had eight events in about twenty to thirty people show up all the time. So while most of the time, I don't know if there's the last statistically confident conclusions. We can draw, but it it really kind seems to depend on the night. People come in varies. I would say the biggest variation is the presentation and so like who decided to book and the topic is important. But we have to balance that against like issues that I wanna raise her also share with the community. And then sometimes other groups like tonight where I see stars came. And that was you know, eight to ten people that just showed up together. In a way that I can really predicted. And so that can be really cool, and that seems to happen at the main event and the neighborhood like we just never really know who's gonna show up, but there's always at least three or four people who come and they specifically because we asked them when we go around and do intros we have I have people tell me why they came up what they're hoping to get out of it. And there's plenty of people that like, you know, I came to this event because I didn't want to go downtown. Right. Which is which is cool, which is one of the reasons why I think a neighborhood event. Like, this is is great and is the goal here. To maybe have a night like this where people can come together and talk about the how we can use data to better help ourselves. Maybe to have this all over the city of Chicago different neighborhoods because there's the big one that's at the merchandise mart. I know the night, but this is sort of like a satellite neighborhood one here, Logan square. But do you want to get going in other neighborhoods as well? I would ideally I mean, how can is very much run as a democracy, and we had talked about being in different events having events in different neighborhoods, and we have in the past partner besmirched, Chicago collaborative which meant to became city tack and done themed events in different parts of the city for women's history month for black history month, and we haven't really had a regularly occurring event outside of downtown. But I I see a lotta value in doing that. I started one a little scary because I live in Logan square. And I figured it would be doable for me because we are all on the organization and like the burnout Israel. And so we're here at second shift, which is co working space that my friend Levi started, and it's like five houses down from where I live. And so it was kind of the nuts and bolts for me where it would be easy to find a space that would host us and make it relatively doable to do it on a regular basis. It's only monthly instead of weekly. And the idea is to kind of try that out and hopefully inspire other people to do the same thing and wherever they live in the city. And as soon as we started doing it, we got interest like there's even someone from park who saw that and was interested tonight. There is a gentleman who lives down on believe he's had one hundred twentieth street as interested in trying to start one down there. And. That's that's the hope. That's the goal was that that would inspire that other people looking back like we may need to restructure or tries a different angle a lot of people have been interested inspire, but no one is really kind of stepped up to actually do it. And so we might try to encourage more directly support like meet ups in different parts of the city, but we really just like as an organization have to figure out how to do that. And like this year, despite I I would say we have a higher profile than ever in the city. We've at the same time struggled to raise all the funds that we need for the year. Whether that's to changes in industry or funding patterns. We're not quite sure. But it. Kind of means that we need to think carefully about how we try to push that because we don't just have. Personally, like vast resources to be able to commit to trying stuff. The.
