First Unitarian Congregational Society of Brooklyn is hosting a Speak Out on New Orleans, concerned that the government is not taking enough action to both help rebuild the city, and prepare for the next hurricane season that starts June 1. At the Harvard UU Ministry for Students worship a few weeks ago, two of our seminarians came back and preached about their experience on a work camp there with some UU youth. One of them who grew up in the Big Easy, really emphasized for me how much long-term assistance is needed there, and how little has already been done. I still am learning whats up with the situation, but this is an event I’d love to go to. UU anti-racism activists passed this along.

First Unitarian Congregational Society,
FEATURING CLERGY, COMMUNITY LEADERS, ACTIVISTS, TEACHERS AND TRADE UNIONISTS – and YOU
· Are the levees being reinforced with materials strong enough to withstand another hurricane?
· Will neighborhoods in the most damaged areas be rebuilt?
· Are any plans underway to build or repair schools and hospitals in these areas?
· Are the poor being ignored?
· What about the cultural heritage of this culturally rich American city?
· What about the rumors of plans for luxury condos and golf courses in a pleasure city for the well-to-do?
