Social media posts are one of the easiest things we can all do to show a global community of support. But even doing that can sometimes feel like you're doing nothing.

One Thing Illinois Cocktail Drinkers Can Do to Protest Russia's Ukraine Invasion

Cocktail Drinkers! Here's how you can stand in protest to what's happening in Ukraine
