We, the people of Graham, are asking for the permanent removal of the confederate statue to progress. We are all created the same exact way and are all deserving of love and respect. This statue only serves as a reminder of the racism that is still prevalent to this day, as we know, many people have threatened to go up in arms over the $2,100 concrete statue. While a lot of us support the permanent removal and destruction of such a statue, it can be donated to museums that can juxtapose its existence to a much larger and holistic context in history. Another option could be to auction the statue and all proceeds go to our local schools. Let us bring unity to the community by taking down the most controversial statue in Graham. We have seen other cities, like Charlottesville, remove their confederate statues. It will be beneficial for our community to be on the right side of history this time. We believe in this city to be better to its Black citizens. By signing this petition you are supporting every member in Alamance County.
