Leesburg, VA (February 26, 2018) – The Love Your Neighbor Orange Ribbon Campaign has been organized by a group of Loudoun County and Leesburg residents in response to recent messages of hate and bigotry to display orange ribbons throughout the community as signs of love and unity. On Saturday, February 24, 2018, Mayor Kelly Burk, Council Member Marty Martinez and Council Member Vanessa Maddox joined Love Your Neighbor representative Laura Giessler to place ribbons on the doors to the Town Hall lobby.  The ribbons will remain on display until the end of March.

A basket of orange ribbons, courtesy of the Love Your Neighbor Orange Ribbon Campaign, is in the lobby of Town Hall. Anyone wishing to have a ribbon is welcome to stop by Town Hall and pick one up.
