Hi Oakland DFA Meetuppers -
As many of you know, at tonight's Oakland DFA Meetup we will be discussing Hurricane Katrina and taking direct action as a community, including writing letters to bring California's National Guard home now from Iraq (to prevent a similar tragedy in the aftermath of an earthquake in the Bay Area).
In addition to raising funds for Habitat for Humanity, America's Second Harvest, ACORN, and NAACP Disaster Relief, we will also be joining Rep. Barbara Lee's campaign to support the victims of Hurricane Katrina.
Whether or not you can donate money to the relief effort, ***please consider bringing some of the material goods described below to tonight's Meetup***.
We'll collect everything and deliver it directly to Rep. Lee for distribution to evacuees:
CONGRESSWOMAN BARBARA LEE
HURRICANE KATRINA DISASTER RELIEF
Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims of Hurricane Katrina. In Louisiana, Alabama, Mississippi and Florida tens of thousands have lost their loved ones, their homes, their communities and their livelihoods.
You can help by making a donation to the NAACP Disaster Relief Fund or by dropping off urgently needed supplies like children’s clothes and school supplies.
We are accepting donations of:
Children’s items: Sleeping bags, slippers, pillows, pajamas
Personal hygiene items
New or gently used clothes
Thank you in advance for your help.
Member of Congress
To participate in Rep. Lee's donation drive, please bring what you can to tonight's meetup!
And, so we can better prepare, please RSVP @ http://dfa.meetup.com...
Thank you for your generosity!
Be the Change,
Eden, James, Amy, Herb, Jason, and Skay
(and ad hoc members Mary, Jennifer, Jak, Nancy, Sharon and Terry)
