Removal of the Confederate Statue

After months of letter writing, protest and directly engaging the City of Winston, the 114 year statue was removed from downtown Winston-Salem.

Hate Out Of Winston was successful in toppling racist symbolism and white supremacy rhetoric by continuously and strategically rallying for the removal of the Confederate Monument located in Downtown, Winston-Salem. The United Daughters of the Confederacy did not want to see the monument removed, but Winston-Salem's Mayor Allen Joines said it ultimately needed to happen and so the City took it down and moved it. This was a huge victory for Hate Out of Winston. Thanks for your support.
