Protestors march from South Building to Silent Sam during the Solidarity Rally and March for the Center for Civil Rights Thursday. 

Students, University faculty and community members gathered Thursday to protest the potential Board of Governors decision to stop the UNC Center for Civil Rights from litigating.

The Solidarity Rally & March with the Center for Civil Rights occurred as a part of a week of activity aimed at saving the UNC Center for Civil Rights.

The rally convened at the steps of South Building before moving to Silent Sam and eventually to the sidewalk in front of UNC system president Margaret Spellings' residence. Planned speakers were present at each location, including UNC Law School students and faculty, a co-president of the Campus Y, community members and people involved with the Center for Civil Rights.
