Ubuntu Weekly #35

an update from the Greensboro Truth and Reconciliation Commission
No. 35 – Oct. 17, 2005

First this week, thanks to the Community Foundation of Greater Greensboro for a $3,000 grant, which will help pay for the Community Dialogue for which staff, interns and volunteers are working hard to prepare.

  • While we continue to need volunteer help, we also have a need right now for a temporary, part-time staff research assistant. See our ad this week in the printed Carolina Peacemaker or visit the blog.

  • Volunteer of the Week: Commissioner Cynthia Brown, who counts excellent facilitation skills among her multiple talents, has provided invaluable leadership as co-chair and primary spokeswoman for the Commission – all while juggling her work and other community service that includes helping to resettle Katrina evacuees. Thanks, Cynthia!

  • This week’s progress indicator: To date – thanks to many supportive individuals and foundations – our fundraising revenues total $404,155.13!

Our upcoming events:
GTRC Community Dialogue, 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 5, Mount Zion Baptist Church, 1301 Alamance Church Road. (Registration requested -- email phyllis@greensborotrc.org)
