Katrina survivors and i-neighbors.org
In an effort to reconnect communities torn apart by Hurricane Katrina, i-neighbors.org has teamed up with the Finding our Folk Tour. Finding our Folk is a month long tour of cities where survivors have been displaced. The eight stops on the tour will bring survivors together to share and document their stories and to examine how they are adjusting to their new communities. Tour organizer Omo Moses, and his father
Bob Moses (civil rights activist, founder of the Algebra Project, and former leader of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC)), publicly announced the tour on Monday, in honor of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, in Jackson, MS. Student volunteers will be distributing information about i-neighbors.org and using laptops to sign people up at Tour stops. The goal is to help survivors connect to their past, present and potentially future neighborhoods (online of course). A separate sign up page and banner for Katrina survivors has been added to the i-neighbors website, if you are interested in spreading the word to survivors, please download a copy of the banner for your site and link directly to the Katrina page.
