The Board of Aldermen called a special meeting to consider a resolution related to the events that took place in Charlottesville, VA on August 12, 2017. In a counterprotest against white supremacy, nineteen were seriously injured and one, Heather Heyer, was murdered. Two Virginia State Troopers, Trooper H.J. Cullen and Trooper Berke Bates were also killed when the helicopter that was monitoring the events crashed.
The Town of Carrboro and the greater Orange County community offers our deepest sympathy, compassion, and solidarity with the families of those injured and killed standing up for justice that day. The
Town of Carrboro will continue to stand with the City of Charlottesville, its residents and students in condemning the KKK, Nazi affiliates, and other white supremacists and fascists who espouse hatred, bigotry, and violenceup for justice that day.
