San José State: National Post-Katrina College Summit

Submitted by Scott ML of San José State

Our summit at San José State went well. The events were well attended. For example, we had about 10-15 newcomers to our Katrina films (in addition to the 20 or so students who are already involved in the SJSU chapter of the Gulf Coast Civic Works Project). Check out this front page story covering "Katrinaquest" [click here]

This article was one of three that was on the front page of the Spartan Daily during our week-long summit. Our highlight event was a "Solidarity Dinner" where we had 20 Katrina survivors and 20 students eat dinner together, and tell our stories It was an incredibly powerful get together, with stories of struggle and inspiration shared by many.
