Rights, Recovery & Renaissance

In the near term, the MOSAIC community is focused on a summit on November 19 entitled Rights, Recovery & Renaissance, which is taking place in Baton Rouge. The focus of the summit is bringing together diverse constituencies to develop near-term actionable steps that concerned citizens can do to help those affected by the Hurricanes Katrina/Rita.

The summit is providing a physical forum which is situated in the Gulf Coast and has a policy and action emphasis. I know that a confrontational, ideological and partisan emphasis is exciting to many, but this summit is presenting an important alternative that, I believe, will be more exciting and productive to the widest group of people.

If you know anyone on the ground in the affected regions, you know that people there feel an urgent need to get the recovery moving.
