Joe Helps Katrina Survivors Raise Money for Return

Last weekend Joe came out to a car wash that Common Ground Seattle held at K-Mart on Aurora. Common Ground is organized by displaced Katrina survivors who are raising money for returning some of their members to New Orleans. Joe met the group a year ago and has helped them energize and organize their fundraising efforts since then, including a local showing of Spike Lee’s “When the Levees Broke” at Central Cinema. Joe really loves helping community groups like this move their ideas and energy to a higher level. It’s grassroots activism for real!
