A Report Back From New Orleans: 3 Years Later
23 Jun 2008
The Jamaica Plain Forum Presents:
“14 Hands, 7 Toolbelts, and 1 New Orleans Family: A Report Back from Post-Katrina Louisiana”

First Church in Jamaica Plain, Unitarian Universalist
6 Eliot St.
Jamaica Plain, MA 02130

Friday, June 27th
7:00pm
FREE

Did you know that, since Hurricane Katrina, Boston-area building trades people have made several trips to rewire and replumb flood-damaged homes on the Gulf coast?

In fact, a crew of seven local electricians, plumbers, and carpenters just returned from New Orleans’ lower ninth ward. Come hear their stories and watch a multi-media presentation of storm-ravaged neighborhoods, recovery efforts, and the faces of marginalized minority residents who are fiercely determined to rebuild their community.

Come hear from electricians Peg Preble and Rick Yoder, plumbers Maura Russell and Barbara Taggart, general contractor Jeff Murray, carpentry and electrical helpers Louise Johnson of SEIU and her brother Eric Johnson of Red Sun Press.
