CHICAGO – To help provide local families with a fun and safe way to celebrate Halloween, State Rep. Justin Slaughter, D-Chicago, hosted a family-friendly “Safe Zone” event at his district office.

“Halloween is always very fun and exciting, but it can also come with a lot of hazards and potential danger,” Slaughter said. “As we experienced this year, it can also come with unexpected weather conditions that make trick-or-treating difficult. Hosting a Halloween event for local children and families offered a safe environment for kids to trick-or-treat and enjoy other activities.”

Slaughter hosted families at his district office and provided food, games, and music. Over 50 families took refuge from the unexpected Halloween snow and enjoyed the activities
