Katrina survivors, more than ever, need your pen to aid them in their struggle to return home.The fate of New Orleans' public housing and Section 8 rentals, and with it the homes of 50,000 already traumatized Katrina survivors, hangs in the balance. On June 3rd exiled public housing residents and supporters are opening a tent city just outside the presently closed St. Bernard Housing Development, the city's largest pre-Katrina public housing complex. The "survivors village" will serve as a base of operations for the grass roots struggle to reopen all local public housing and to replenish the city's Section 8 public housing stock to its pre-Katrina levels.
