  • I had hope to volunteer at Burton Street Peace Gardens this afternoon. I assumed that would be postponed due to the snow. I see that virtual speakers were scheduled for this morning. I’m sorry that I missed seeing this live. I would like to subscribe to be notified about any events that are still occuring this week.
    Thank you for keeping this legacy alive. It is so needed at this time in our country. I stand in support as a member of the Racial Justice Team of First Presbyterian Church Asheville and a long-time ally for racial and economic justice.
