We’re already hard at work planning the 2019 Guilford Green Gala and Green Party. Put a hold on your calendar for March 23, 2019.

The sit-down dinner at Starmount Forest Country Club will be followed by the Green Party hosted by Jessica Mashburn and Evan Olson.

Dinner will feature guest speaker Sarah McBride, a progressive activist and the National Press Secretary at the Human Rights Campaign, the nation’s largest LGBTQ civil rights organization.

In 2016, Sarah made history when she became the first openly transgender person to address a major party convention.

Her book Tomorrow Will Be Different chronicles her journey as a transgender woman, from coming out to her family and school community, to fighting for equality in her home state and nationally, to her heartbreaking romance with her late husband.
