Ubuntu Weekly #61
Thanks going out this week to the Community Foundation of Greater Greensboro for an additional $10,000 grant last week that, in addition to helping us cover our final expenses, gives us a vote of confidence that our work holds promise for the city’s future.
- Thanks, too, to Jacinta White of the Word project, the Greensboro Public Library, and all the participants in Saturday’s “Poetry, Truth and Reconciliation” workshop. It was an enlightening and enjoyable experience, and we appreciated being part of PoetryGSO.
- Volunteer of the Week: Matt Shelton, a recent Guilford College graduate and faithful truth and reconciliation supporter who has been part of our statement-transcribing team. Thanks, Matt!
- This week’s progress indicator: The Greensboro Men’s Club, an organization with a long and influential history in the city, has agreed to become a GTRC Report Receiver.
