Reminder: Walk with Malik Rahim on Friday's Katrina commemoration events
- Three years since Katrina and the government continues to fail us. Malik Rahim has spoken out with courage, asked the difficult questions, and built viable community alternatives. He is a strong organizer that acted while the politicians waited. Now he wants to take his courage to Congress. Malik is on the November 4 ballot for US Congress, 2nd District.
We must continue to demand solutions for ourselves and our neighbors in New Orleans and the Gulf Coast. Please march with Malik on the 3rd Anniversary of Katrina. Everyone that does will get a Malik Rahim campaign T-shirt.
Meet Friday August 28 at 8:30 AM at the corner of Jourdan and Galvez in the Lower 9th Ward and march with us to remember our loss, re-invigorate our energy, and to demand full reinvestment in our communities.
