Statement from United Way of Greenville County and local nonprofit foundations regarding Greenville County Council’s 1996 resolution
United Way of Greenville County, Greenville Partnership for Philanthropy, Community Foundation of Greenville, Hollingsworth Funds, Elbert W. Rogers Foundation, and the Jolley Foundation join the call for Greenville County Council to immediately take the necessary measures to rescind the 1996 resolution at the center of the current debate.
We know the people of Greenville County to be welcoming, caring and generous in their support of our neighbors. The anti-LGBTQ resolution adopted 24 years ago is a stain on our great community as it fails to reflect the diverse, forward-thinking, open-hearted place that we call home.
We are a stronger, better community when we embrace our differences and stand united for all.
