Remove Confederate Branding from Williamson County Seal

0 have signed. Let’s get to 15,000!

Public displays of the Confederate battle flag have long been controversial, and the Williamson County (TN) seal has featured this flag in the top left corner since 1968, coincidentally the same year as the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and the passing of the Civil Rights Act of 1968, and shortly after the integration of the schools in Williamson County. 

The recent murders of Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, and George Floyd, along with the subsequent vigils, rallies, and marches in Williamson County, all 50 states, and dozens of countries, have forced many of us to have difficult conversations about racism. 

As residents and leaders in Williamson County process and respond to racial injustice in our community, now is the time for our county to do something to show a commitment to diversity, unity, equity, and justice. Businesses, churches, and community organizations redesign their logos to show a renewed vision, mission, or purpose.  Williamson County should take the opportunity right now to replace this seal with an new design.
