Dear Plenty Friends,
A new 11 minute video by Plenty International, an expanded version of
the interviews we did for Robert Greenwald's Brave New Foundation's,
2nd Anniversary video, features four Katrina Survivors ( Vernon
Washington, Rudy Aguilar, Linda Audibert and Melverleane Gaines) who
waiting for help promised by Federal and State governments through the
"Road Home" program to get out of their cramped and toxic FEMA trailers
back into their homes. All four live in the Lower 9th Ward of New
Orleans or the town of Arabi in the adjacent St. Bernard Parish. All
four are among
the folks Plenty has been assisting within the limits of our funding
and available skilled volunteers. Their stories are heart-breaking but
resolute spirit and determination are inspiring and it's appalling to
realize that there are tens of thousands more just like them. These are
that deserve a national microphone. The video can be viewed here:
If Road Home were to come through for these people we could have all of
them back in their homes before year end. Three of the four families
out of their trailers and back in their homes for a total of less than
$20,000. As Rudy Aguilar points out it cost FEMA more than twice that
ship and set up just one trailer.
