The last three posts, which were announcements from The People's Hurricane Fund / Community Labor United, came via Becky Belcore, who also said:
First, we would like to thank everyone for your amazing work and energy around this project. Since we put out the first call for action a few weeks ago, we have been inundated with calls, emails, donations and offers of support. We have been overwhelmed by your commitment and generosity.
In light of proposals made at the meeting in Baton Rouge, Community Labor United (CLU) has been working to establish a structure with work committees. Based on the concept of a national campaign with local leadership, this committee structure will allow the work to be efficient and transparent. CLU members will finish reviewing the final draft of the committee structure by tomorrow morning and a call for volunteers for committees will be issued tomorrow afternoon.
Please let everyone know that tax-deductible donations should be earmarked for the People's Hurricane Relief Fund and checks made out to:
Vanguard Public Foundation
383 Rhode Island St., Ste 301
San Francisco, CA 94103
