Last week, an interactive tour bus pulled into Millennium Park for two days, with the goal of helping to fight discrimination.

Part of the USA Network, Characters Unite Month shows fans the importance of fighting hate and bigotry. Locals were invited to stamp T-shirts that stated "I Won't Stand For..." with options including "racism," "homophobia," "religious intolerance" and bullying. They could then make a video message or photo that would be immediately uploaded to their social-media sites to bring attention to the cause.

Dule Hill from the USA show Psych was on hand to talk to attendees about the importance of tolerance while stamping his own T-shirt.
