We are writing to let you know that the University and the Town of Chapel Hill are preparing for a demonstration this evening. We are working closely with town officials and law enforcement to ensure the safety of our communities, which remains our highest priority.

The best way to stay safe this evening is to avoid the area surrounding Peace and Justice Plaza and McCorkle Place and remain alert as you move about campus. East Cameron Avenue will be closed to through traffic between Columbia Street and Raleigh Street beginning at 7 p.m. Some campus parking lots will be closed, and traffic will be rerouted. For details and updates, visit https://move.unc.edu or follow @UNC on Twitter.

As a reminder, contact police by dialing 911 if you receive threats or ever feel your safety is threatened, including on social media. We also have counseling services available for students, faculty and staff. During regular business hours, students are encouraged to call Counseling and Psychological Services at 919-966-3658. After hours, students may call 919-966-2281 for immediate assistance. Faculty and staff may contact our Employee Assistance Program 24 hours a day at 877-314-5841.
