More than 200 protesters toppled a controversial Confederate statue on the campus of the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill on Monday.Video footage showed the crowd jeering and cheering as they brought down the 105-year-old statue known as “Silent Sam,” which students have long regarded as a symbol of white supremacy.Aside from helping with general fundraising efforts for the center, AXO shows their commitment to ending domestic violence by helping with “the little things.” Some recent ways Alpha Chis have helped out at FVPC are: Callie Uffman, the VP of Philanthropy for AXO, told us the following aboutwhat it means to work with us on the issue of DV, “at the national and local levels, Alpha Chi Omega is devoted to helping our women address the tragedy of domestic violence.Because women are affected by this issue that has personally affected some of our members and their families, we’ve made this our national philanthropy since 1992.The performance includes performances from groups such as the East Dance Ensemble, The Carolian Friend’s School Dance Program and Naachle, the Indian dance group at East Chapel Hill.

Supporters of the statue — and other Confederate monuments — said it is not a racist symbol, but a symbol honoring Southern heritage.The group gathered around the bronze statue in the early evening, holding signs and chanting, “Stand up, fight back,” and, “Hey, hey, ho, ho, this racist statue has got to go.” Then they wrapped the statue in a banner that read, “For a world without white supremacy,” and tied rope around it before yanking the statue to the ground, according to video footage published on the local news website Protesters shrieked and yelled in triumph, and a few protesters stomped on the bronze statue.Tuesday’s actions were criticized by some who considered it the wrong way to express frustration over years of failed efforts to remove Silent Sam from campus.The university’s chancellor, Carol Folt, acknowledged the divisiveness of Silent Sam’s presence on campus in a statement Tuesday but also described protesters’ actions as “unlawful and dangerous:” The plaza where Silent Sam stood has been the center of dozens of protest over the years, dating back to the 1960s.
