ROAD TRIP FOR RELIEF

Updated 01.12.2006

COMMON GROUND RELIEF IS STILL SEEKING SUPPORT TO CONTINUE HELPING SURVIVORS OF KATRINA

Volunteers needed to help those who are helping rebuild in the wake of the devastation from the hurricanes.  Join the effort to bring volunteers and supplies to the Common Ground Collective, www.commongroundrelief.org for more information.

The goal is to bring much needed physical and morale support to the people to the people of Algiers and the 9th Ward.

Volunteers should be in good physical and mental health, be able to do hard physical labor and/or bring a specific needed skill. Volunteers should be able to pay/bring/make for own food and water. Shelter will be provided.  Volunteers must be able to work in a "collective", non-sectarian, anti-racist/sexist environment.

Since Katrina and Rita, Common Ground Collective has served nearly 20,000 residents of some of the hardest hit regions of New Orleans, establishing two community centers and a free health clinic with volunteers. This grassroots effort has begun the work of helping the people of Black New Orleans reclaim their lives.

New Orleans Greens seek help, donations for relief efforts

Updated 09.29.2005

Leenie Halbert & Andrea Garland of the New Orleans Green Party need help with post-Katrina relief work in New Orleans.

They've established a relief center to feed 250 people a day (with help from Food Not Bombs), and they're planning to set up a medical clinic. They're also involved with a 'pirate' radio station that features health and self-help information, news, and music. It's the only radio station currently broadcasting in New Orleans.

Here's what they need:
Donations of non-perishable vegetarian food (beans, dried fruit, grains, etc).
Vitamins, toiletries, water rechargeable batteries, cell phones, computers, mobile cards for cell phones.

They also encourage people to send caravans of supplies (as some Greens have done already).

Donations can be made on-line at
http://www.Getyouracton.com

and
http://www.RebuildGreen.org

Or contact them directly:
Leenie: 225-615-4905, leenie@leenie.com
Andrea: 254-640-8441, andrea@getyouracton.org

Malik, who ran as a Green candidate for New Orlean City Council, has been organizing in New Orleans to develop medical clinics and self-help operations, deliver food and water to those who need it, clearing blockages, and helping people deal with FEMA and the police, which have been trying to force and intimidate people into leaving.
