This is a call to people of all races, cultures and religions. We need you. At precisely 5 pm on September 20th, a rally will start in front of the Melvin Municipal Office Building in downtown Greensboro. The number of people in support of keeping the White Street Landfill closed is massive and will be showcased at this rally.
