Update on Possible Rally

Post Date:08/22/2017 4:12 PM

Late yesterday UNC Chancellor Carol Folt sent a message to the University community which addresses the possibility of a rally at 7 p.m. today (Tuesday, Aug. 22) near the Silent Sam statute on UNC campus.

To ensure that our entire community is up to date, I wish to share the Chancellor’s message with you.  I am also attaching the letter I sent to the Chancellor about removal of the statue.

In doing so, I want to reassure everyone that our public safety officers, Town staff and the Chapel Hill Downtown Partnership are working together with the University and downtown business owners in the best interests of community safety.

In the wake of events in Charlottesville and Durham, we know that tensions are running high, and we wish to reaffirm that the Town of Chapel Hill remains committed to diversity, inclusion and respect for all.

We will continue to look for ways to foster opportunities for peaceful and constructive dialogue on pressing social justice issues so that our community can move forward together.

Along with the University, we are continuing to monitor this situation and will be providing additional information, including possible road closures in downtown, should it be necessary.  Subscribe to news from the Town of Chapel Hill at, send a request for assistance to or follow us on social media @ChapelHillGov.
