Rebuilding & Justice in New Orleans

June 12-19, 2010, I led UUCMP staff and volunteers in planning and attending a week-long justice project with the New Orleans Rebirth Volunteer Program run by the Center for Ethical Living and Social Justice Renewal at First UU Church of New Orleans.  The entire congregation sponsored us - by donating money to the cause of rebuilding, and by joining in our exploration of the people, culture and history of New Orleans, and the racial and economic injustices that led to devastation and continue today.  It was life changing for many of us, including 4 energetic teenage attendees!
