Fighting Hate in Chapel Hill on October 25th and Beyond

It looks like a growing number of people are using today's confederate flag rally in Chapel Hill as a way to fight hate.

For every confederate flag seen at Silent Sam today they will donate to the Southern Poverty Law Center or a similar non-profit.. That is, they will use the rally as a way to drive donations to organizations established to fight hate and foster togetherness. The idea is to let the rallyers know that wherever they gather to support a symbol of oppression, they will be directly helping to fund organizations that fight oppression.

How does one participate? Simple: Ii you are at the rally, use the hashtag ‪#‎ChapelHillAgainstHate‬ to post your count of flags. If you want to help with a donation, make a donation to SPLC or a similar organization then post about it on social media using the hashtag #‎ChapelHillAgainstHate. Watch the hashtag this afternoon to get an idea of flag counts and see who is playing.

The more people who post with the hashtag, the better chance there is of getting the word out, of getting the attention of the press, of the rallyers, of people wanting to fight hate.
