Lenn Park in Culpeper, Virginia is a county park that is used by many local and surrounding counties.  It is a park with many amenities that other parks in the area do not have and considered the best park in our town due to this.  But Lenn Park is not used and enjoyed by all the county residents due to the Confederate flag that is proudly displayed when entering the facility.  

The Confederate flag is not a symbol of southern pride but rather a symbol of rebellion and racism. Symbols of hate have no place in our county ran facilities.

The Confederate battle emblem represents: hatred, death, slavery, and a division amongst all people. It is past time for the flag to come down. The battle to remove the flag was denied a few years back but now is the time to fight again!

This facility is ran by the county of Culpeper but the land on the website states “that it was donated to preserve the civil war significance that played a major role in the 1863 Battle of Brandy Station between Federal and Confederate Calvary soldiers”. But why does this symbol of hate have to be displayed??? 

5years ago the removal was turned down, we should not let this happen again!!

As residents and leaders in Culpeper County process and respond to racial injustice in our country, now is the time for our county to do something to show a commitment to diversity, unity, equity, and justice.  Remove this flag and let the unity begin!  Please sign this petition for the removal of this flag.
