OUTREACH NEW ORLEANS:
MARTIN LUTHER KING DAY OF SERVICE MONDAY JANUARY 21, 2008



Hands On New Orleans 1

Transforming the grounds through front yard landscaping including the construction of planter boxes, planting a community garden and other beautification tasks.

Guided Neighborhood Cleanup and History Tour Renovate the school by creating murals on canvasses with social justice and academic themes Install a much needed marquee and signage for the school

F.Y.I. FROM YOUR PLANETARY SISTER - The kids who go to this school in the above picture, (yep, the above facility is a middle/high school for kids) these kids also get to wear Guantanamo orange colored shirts. It is really disturbing to see these children walking around in a prison camp like structure and see this color orange on children. Kinda like institutionalizing the consciousnesses of the young psychologically and spiritually isn't it? Who ever thought that a prison camp like compound and the wearing of 'prison orange' would be good for these children?


The number of remaining spots available :
TOO MANY ! 90
