Foundation mounts mothers campaign

GREENSBORO, N.C. — Guilford Green Foundation is asking the community to speak out against HB2 this Mother’s Day on May 8 by publicly proclaiming that the measure is not representative of the community or the culture in which we want our children to be raised.

An ad with this message will run in the Greensboro News & Record on May 8 with names of those who took a stand against intolerance. The full page ad was made possible by a $35 contribution to the foundation collected earlier this week.
