City of Green Bay Ending Emergency Curfew

(Green Bay, WI) Today, Mayor Genrich ended the City of Green Bay Emergency Curfew because the protest is expected to be a peaceful demonstration of our community’s first amendment rights.

Our community will still be protected by laws that already exist, such as: the City ordinance “Public Peace and Good Order,” which limits noise after 10 pm and before 7 am; the 10 pm curfew for juveniles under 17; and Wisconsin State Statute “Unlawful Assemblies and Their Suppression,” which states “an “unlawful assembly" is an assembly which consists of 3 or more persons and which causes such a disturbance of public order that it is reasonable to believe that the assembly will cause injury to persons or damage to property unless it is immediately dispersed.”

The text of the “Proclamation Ending Emergency Curfew” is below.
