Baking away hatred, one cookie at a time
CARBONDALE -- With local citizens split on the impending visit of President Donald Trump to Jackson County on Saturday, one local business has taken a different approach. Cristaudo's, a bakery in Carbondale for over four decades, is selling, "Hate has no home here" decorated sugar cookies, and pledging to donate 50 cents from every cookie sale to the Southern Illinois Immigrant Rights Project. SIIRP works to inform, defend and expand the rights of all residents in Southern Illinois, regardless of status.
