The top image on the home page of the website is from Carolina’s annual Holi Moli UNC celebration. As a partnership of Hindu Yuva, Sangam, the Multicultural Affairs and Diversity Outreach committee of Student Government, and the Campus Y, the mission of Holi Moli UNC is to promote multiculturalism and diversity at UNC by celebrating the arrival of spring through the Hindu celebration of Holi and by raising awareness and funds for social justice initiatives in our community.

To pursue its mission, Holi Moli UNC unites organizations across campus to plan events that convey the cultural and social justice messages of Holi. The culmination of these events is seen in the Holi Moli event, in which Tar Heels gather on Hooker Fields to throw their colors in the air in celebration of their identities and that of others.
