Peace and Justice Monument

from Town of Chapel Hill Email List:

The Chapel Hill Town Council supported a Council Naming Committee recommendation to physically mark the space in front of the Old Post Office on Franklin Street as “Peace and Justice Plaza.” A granite marker will be erected at the base of the flagpole. The marker will include a quote from Benjamin Franklin: “There was never a good war or a bad peace,” and the names of three local civil justice activists (Alice Adams, Joe Straley and Lucy Straley), with room left on the monument for the addition of future names.
