North Carolina Town Flies Anti-Violence Flag

Following the school shooting in Kentucky last week, the North Carolina Town of Chapel Hill raised an orange flag at the town's Peace and Justice Plaza. The flag is usually flown on Gun Violence Awareness Day.

In a Twitter post announcing that the flag had been raised, a town spokesperson said the flag is "in recognition of the alarming frequency of school shootings and to affirm Chapel Hill’s community commitment to end gun violence."
