Weeklong radio series on UU Gulf Coast relief.
Boston news radio WBZ 1030 is running a series of reports this week from reporter Anthony Silva, who spent the week between Christmas and New Year's working with volunteers in Unitarian Universalist-sponsored relief work on the Gulf Coast. I haven't had time to listen to his dispatches yet, but you can find pictures, summaries of his reports, and audio files at WBZ's "Battling Back in the Bayou" page. I learned about Silva's work from UUA Moderator Gini Courter, who described her own volunteer work in New Orleans that week during her report to the UUA Board of Trustees this past Sunday.
Ongoing volunteer efforts are being coordinated in New Orleans by the Unitarian Universalist Hurricane Relief and Social Justice Project, headquartered at the UU Church of Baton Rouge with funding from the UUA-UUSC Gulf Coast Relief Fund. Similar volunteer opportunities are also available in hurricane-damaged areas of Mississippi.
