Dear Friends, Finally, there's a bill in Congress that would help some of the hardest hit Katrina survivors come back home. Unfortunately, it is about to die because some members of the Senate think it's fine for certain New Orleanians--specifically those who are Black and poor--to be shut out of the city. I just called on my senators to support the Gulf Coast Housing Recovery Act of 2007 (S. 1668). It would re-open desperately needed housing and make sure there is no loss of affordable public housing in New Orleans. Please join me in supporting this initiative led by www.ColorofChange.org by contacting your senators. It takes just a moment: http://www.colorofchange.org/housing/?id=1762-144337 We must actively participate in the process of government to affect change. Rallies and protests help a lot. But our political leaders respond most effectively to VOTERS WHO ARE ACTIVELY ENGAGED. If the support for Katrina victims is important to you, please take these easy steps to let your Senators know. Thanks.
