The City of Wheaton and the Wheaton Police Department are aware of a planned protest march at 1:30 p.m. Sunday, June 7, starting near the intersection of Main and Front streets. Organizers have advertised this event as a peaceful protest. Protests of this nature are a protected form of the Constitutional right to free speech and assembly.   

Participants are planning to walk on sidewalks. Vehicular traffic may experience some delays when the pedestrian groups are crossing intersections.  

Organizers have shared this route:  

  • Starting from the plaza on Front Street near Main Street 
  • Heading north on Main Street 
  • West on Wesley Street 
  • South on Wheaton Avenue 
  • East on Front Street 

The Wheaton Police Department will have officers present  for everyone’s safety. We expect this will be a peaceful gathering and we respect the right of people to assemble peacefully, but we remind attendees that violent criminal acts will not be tolerated.

The Wheaton Police Department and City of Wheaton will continue to keep the community up-to-date. To receive updates, follow the City of Wheaton on Facebook and Twitter (@CityOfWheaton), sign up to receive email updates ( or visit the City’s website at
