Greetings,

One by one the chapters of our final report are coming together, thanks to the work of staff, volunteers and consultants. We’re looking forward to presenting a collective memory to replace the divergent understandings that help keep us divided.
  • We know it’s not the most convenient time but we do hope you’ll plan to join us at our report release ceremony May 25 (details below), where we’ll democratically deliver our report to the entire community in one fell swoop. Be there to get it firsthand and interpret it for yourself.
  • Speaking of interpreting, we’re looking forward to some creative new interpretations and ideas to come out of our poetry workshop April 22 (details below). Planning to join us? We’d love it if you’d RSVP. E-mail [email protected]
  • Volunteer of the Week: Rev. Carole Howard, a grassroots Greensboro-based minister, teacher and artist who is lending her gifts, connections and experience to our campaign to recruit GTRC Report Receivers. Thanks, Carole!
  • This week’s progress indicator: Between the Commission and the Greensboro Truth and Community Reconciliation Project, we’re averaging one-two engagements a week with classes and other groups interested in our experience, in general or with specific topics such as truth, reconciliation, justice, forgiveness or history. If you’d like someone to speak to your group, e-mail [email protected].
