 Previously Unpublished Notes from 2007


What will you be doing on August 29th 2007?



Let's get out into the streets and let the nation and the world know, "everything is not okay in New Orleans!


"When was the last time you drove through the 9th Ward? Through Desire? Through the areas where "affordable" housing sits empty? How about St. Bernard's parish and further south? The gulf coast?


Don't let the media and public relations firms that are designed to "enhance" the tourist experience frame what the nation and the world sees going on!


Let yourself be seen!


On August 29th - photograph and video what your neighborhood looks like!


Organize your friends, family members, co-workers - fellow volunteers and get into the streets!





Life's most persistent and urgent question is, 'What are you doing for others?'


--Martin Luther King. Jr.
