Benefit poster for Katrina victims

September 12, 2005

From the Northland Poster Collective:

In the wake of Hurricane Katrina we have produced a poster (by Northland artist Ricardo Levins Morales) that seeks to capture the sadness and the anger that this moment calls forth. the poster will benefit relief efforts by way of the Southern Partners Fund. Based in Atlanta, the fund has relationships with grassroots groups throughout the region and is governed democratically. They are able to respond to needs as they arise in the full range of affected communities. Please take a look at this image and pass along word of it to others who may appreciate it.

Nothland is a great resource for posters and other political art, see Ricardo Levins Morales’ Katrina memorial poster here. Remember too that you can contribute directly to grassroots organizations doing on-the-ground work with hurricane victimes here.

This is really great! In these days of disaster, help is really needed by people who were hit and injured by one of the worst Hurricane, which is Katrina. This program is one way to lend a hand. Some people have much grander things to worry about – like the citizens of New Orleans’ Lower 9th Ward. The people who inhabit the lower 9th Ward have still been waiting for their homes to be repaired in the wake of Hurricane Katrina, and they haven’t been offered the help more affluent neighborhoods were afforded by the state government and FEMA were offered in record time. However, the actor Brad Pitt has bellied up to the bar, and started a project called Make It Right. After seeing the devastation that has yet to be rectified in the area, Pitt decided that he was going to help out, and Make it Right has pledged to rebuild 150 homes by the end of summer 2009. It is a sad fact that these people have had to depend on Hollywood impresarios for help, but it is commendable that he took it upon himself to do something when those who should have done so failed to act. If you’re facing a financial crisis, don’t wait for the cavalry to arrive years after the fact – you can do something about it right away, and payday loans are one of the things you can do to ease your emergency burdens.
