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.

the gtrc will have a very hard time even breaking even when the waste of city man power is taken into consideration. if you were truly concerned w making gso better, u would see that it is not grant money, pagentry, graphic designers, poetry, social gatherings or hearings about something that happened 20 some years ago that gets the job done. Why was i banned from being a report reciever. i emailed your person months ago. never a response? it is my beleif that the gtrc is simply working to build a stage for a police review board. it is powe that u work for. not the poor in gso. many of the poor will not even have access to your report. u have singled out org's because poor folsk endorsement of the report wont mean much. but, organizations will have an impact. i hate I ever helped y'all
