Action Alert


FRIDAY, 4/31/09


Dear David,
The Gulf Coast Civic Works (GCCW) Campaign would like to invite you to join several hundred advocates, including Gulf Coast survivors, to Advocacy Days in Washington, DC on May 30-June 1.

Supporters of the GCCW Act will participate in a series of events and congressional visits to bring attention to the continuing human rights crisis in the region, and vulnerability of residents to future disasters as the 2009 Hurricane Season begins. Excitingly, the GCCW Act will be re-introduced into Congress next Tuesday.

Participate in the GCCW Advocacy Days--click here to register:

As a part of the GCCW Advocacy Days, participants will urge members of Congress and the new Administration in meetings to authorize and fund the GCCW Act to rebuild community infrastructure, restore the environment, and reduce energy use to create more equitable and disaster resilient communities.

The GCCW Project is working on Advocacy Days with ACORN, Color of Change, Robert F. Kennedy Center for Justice and Human Rights, Institute for Southern Studies, Oxfam America, Student Hurricane Network, and "Trouble the Water."

GCCW Advocacy Days Events will include:

* May 30: Registration and Introduction at George Mason University, including evening reception/screening of "Trouble the Water"
* May 31: Interfaith Service, Recovery Policy Seminars and Legislative Advocacy Training at George Mason University
* June 1: Congressional Visits and Rally

Get yourself to DC on May 30-June 1st, and let's rebuild the Gulf Coast equitably!
Best regards,

Scott Myers-Lipton, Ph.D.
