In light of the news of the Chief making an appearance at this weekend's Homecoming Parade at the University of Illinois, there are a few worthy events to check out in the next few days.

Tonight at the Asian American Cultural Center (1210 W. Nevada Street, Urbana), there will be a discussion about the Chief hosted by the Asian Pacifi American Coalition and the Native American & Indigenous Student Organization at U of I. The event is tonight at 7 p.m.

On Friday, there is a protest being held to reject the Chief's presence at the Homecoming Parade — this is being held at the Illinois Student Government portion of the Illini Union (250 Illini Union, 1401 W. Green Street, Urbana). That is being held at 6 p.m.
