With the NATO summit just over a month away, Lori Healey, the executive director of the NATO host committee, addressed the Niagara Foundation, a group that promotes global fellowship.

Despite plans for protests, she does not expect the summit will create many problems for the city.

"We expect that people will continue to have rights to express their first amendment rights and everything will go off," she said.

Healy said the Secret Service and the FBI are working closely with the Chicago Police Department to make sure everything goes smoothly.
