12. I've got the gulf march posts in my DU journal
There are a few of them.

Bayou Liberty Relief is being managed both by Niki and by the Iraq Veterans Against the War at the moment. Some people here might know Kelly, Joe, and Ethan from the IVAW. They're all down there now. They'd be thrilled to have more volunteers, even if it's just short term, during the summer. Our team was up to 14 or 15 people some days while I was there, so we were able to muck a house in about 5 or 6 hours working together. But Skinner, myself and the three people I went with all left over the weekend. And there was one other woman and her friend who were volunteering because BLRC had fixed her mother's house back when she couldn't get away to help, so she was paying them back with labor for other people. I'm not sure if those two were just there for the week or if they were staying longer. The crew might be down to 8 or less now. It's a lot more uplifting to do the work when there are enough hands that you see clear progress over the course of a day.

If anyone here is local, you could probably volunteer for just a morning or occasional Saturdays (they're working 6 days a week) and they'd be happy to see you.
