Ubuntu Weekly #62

We’re now in our last month of operation, pushing hard to complete our final report, plan the Report Release Ceremony and clear out the office by May’s end when the GTRC ceases to exist.

  • All supporters affiliated with organizations willing to become GTRC Report Receivers are encouraged to join us this Thursday at our Report Receivers Gathering at Tuscana Cuisine (details below). Come learn more about the May 25 GTRC Report Release Ceremony, mingle and enjoy refreshments with other receivers, and discuss post-Commission work for community reconciliation.
  • Volunteer of the Week: Rev. Mazie Ferguson, president of the Greensboro Pulpit Forum, who shared her experience and analyses at our third public hearing and since has helped us with fundraising, advocacy and even poetry. Thanks, Mazie!
  • This week’s progress indicator: Seventeen chapters plus numerous annexes summing up our 22 months of work have been assembled into a final report and are in various stages of drafting and finalizing by a hard-working team including Commissioners, staff, consultants and volunteers.
