      Take Part in Community Forum on Rebuilding New Orleans via Webcast

      The ACORN Community Forum on Rebuilding New Orleans in Baton Rouge, Louisiana on November 7th and 8th, will bring together the displaced residents of New Orleans, and leading urban planners and architects from around the country. Co-sponsors for the event include the Cornell City and Regional Planning Department, the School of Architecture at Pratt University, the College of Art and Design at Louisiana State University, and numerous elected officials.

      The event will begin with a tour of New Orleans neighborhoods. The rest of the two-day conference will be webcast for Katrina survivors, ACORN members, activists, and educational institutions across the country from 6pm to 9pm Monday, and 9am to 6pm Tuesday. Participants from outside of Baton Rouge, who will be viewing the dialogue via webcast, will be able to communicate via email to the forum attendees.

      The opening plenary, on Monday from 6pm-9pm, will feature leaders from the ACORN Katrina Survivors Association, urban planning experts, and elected officials discussing their neighborhoods and their hopes for a rebuilding that lifts up all communities.

      On Tuesday, starting at 9:00 am, the forum will hold detailed discussions that will focus on four New Orleans neighborhoods -- the Ninth Ward, New Orleans East, Gentilly, and Uptown. Maps of all the neighborhoods will allow residents to see how much water flooded their homes.  
      To sponsor a webcast of this event, one only needs:

        * a desktop computer or laptop with at least Windows 2000;
        * DSL or broadband connection (no dial-up);
        * a video projector and cables (to hook up to computer or laptop);
        * a 6 to 9 ft screen (25 to 40 people - 6ft screen; 50-100 people 9 ft. screen);
        * a sound system (for larger groups);
        * and Windows Media Player (standard on all Windows computers).

      For more information about the webcast, please contact Jeff Karlson at acorn@... or by phone at 225-925-5558 or contact your local ACORN office. Press inquiries are welcome; please contact acorncomm@... for more information.
