The other day I received this from the president of my alma mater:
To the Loyola University New Orleans community:
Restoring the Gulf Coast after the oil spill will require vast resources. A nationwide movement is underway to help gather those resources, and Loyola University New Orleans supports this effort.
I urge you to watch the video I have linked to below, and sign the petition that accompanies it. The video is produced by Women of the Storm, a New Orleans-based organization founded in the wake of Hurricane Katrina. Their petition asks the federal government for financial assistance in restoring the Gulf Coast.
