Wilmette and Northbrook, IL – The Village of Northbrook has experienced incidents where flyers containing antisemitic hate speech and propaganda were distributed in our community.
The materials appear to be placed at random and not targeted to specific residents.
The Northbrook Police Department actively investigates these incidents when they occur and works hard every day to keep our community safe.
In additional, antisemitic literature was dropped throughout Wilmette. The Village remains steadfast in our commitment to work to create an environment where all people feel safe and respected within the community and these types of incidents are unacceptable; the Village stands by our Jewish neighbors.
Below is the Village’s statement regarding a similar incident from June and the Village remains absolute in its rejection of these types of actions.
