Community Dialogue

All Greensboro community members are invited to register for the Truth and Reconciliation Commission's Community Dialogue. Here are the details:

Saturday, November 5, 2005
9 a.m. - 5 p.m.
Mt. Zion Baptist Church
1301 Alamance Road

The goals of this event are:
· To give the community a voice in the Commission’s final report recommendations
· To help the community, including the Commission, to better understand the issues surrounding the events of Nov. 3, 1979, and how they are connected to our present and future.
· To lay a foundation for community bridge building over time.

Participants will be divided into small groups led by skilled facilitators to discuss the following topics:
· Reactions to the public hearings (a video summarizing the hearings will be shown during the event so it is not necessary that participants attended the hearings)
· Identifying issues from 1979 that still need to be addressed
· Brainstorming ideas for how Greensboro institutions and individuals can approach these issues

To register, please email or call the GTRC Office at 275-6462 or

If you are an experienced facilitator and would like to volunteer your time at this event, visit here for more information and email me.
