> what good is school if I can’t even go to college?” –J., Charlotte
> *Welcoming Greensboro Initiative*: We keep making progress on our
> effort to pass a resolution in the City Council to declare our city
> one that welcomes immigrants. We are holding discussions with diverse
> sectors of the immigrant community and we now have a Welcoming
