We need your help TODAY and THIS WEEKEND and through next week, people. And thanks to every one of you in advance!

Among three candidates - a Green, a Republican, and a Democratic incumbent indicted on multiple corruption charges - Louisiana Green Party candidate MALIK RAHIM is the only one who truly looked after the people of New Orleans, the people of the Ninth Ward, etc., after the scandal of the levees that were allowed to break after Hurricane Katrina.

In the days following Hurricane Katrina, it was Malik Rahim who helped to found the grassroots assistance organisation called the COMMON GROUND COLLECTIVE.

Today and all through next week YOUR HELP is needed to make phone calls to New Orleans voters -- from now up to Election Day -- as well as to potential donors/supporters outside New Orleans.
If you know anyone who can GO to New Orleans to help, please do try to recruit them, too.

We also need your help to raise as many little contributions of CASH as we can, and especially NOW and over THIS WEEKEND, BEFORE MONDAY. After Monday we still need donations but we need as many funds as possible to already be donated to the campaign THIS WEEKEND in order for the campaign to be able to USE THEM as soon as possible to be effective.
$5.00, $10.00, $20.00, etc., please contribute online through PAYPAL -- or call the campaign and donate
over the phone. See, or email for methods of donating besides Paypal online.

Please forward this message and ask your peeps, your organizations, to help also! Thanks!!

Phone banking only requires a computer with Internet connection, plus your phone to make long-distance calls (for all of us calling from outside New Orleans).
Phone bank info and SIGN UP are here:

As Bruce Dixon writes in his extremely telling article, below:
"In a low turnout environment like this a few votes, a modest contribution of money or time can make a big difference. "

He adds, "If you want a change, be that change."

Three years since Katrina and the government continues to fail us. Malik Rahim has spoken out with courage, asked the difficult questions, and built viable community alternatives. He is a strong organizer that acted while the politicians waited. Now he wants to take his courage to Congress. Malik is on the ballot for US Congress in Louisiana's 2nd District.

The Louisiana Secretary of State changed the elections calendar after Hurricane Gustav, so the general election where you can vote for Malik is on December 6, not November 4.

Malik's Platform

  • Hurricane Recovery & Flood Protection:
  • Rebuild a Sustainable Economy:
  • Quality Public Education:

  • Healthcare for All:

  • Comprehensive and Sustainable Energy Policy:

  • Reform of the Criminal Justice System:

  • Alternative sentencing for non-violent offenders.

  • Troops out of Iraq:

  • Affordable Housing

  • Call for a full investigation now on the awarding of contracts for the demolition of public housing developments in New Orleans and their reconstruction

Green Party Black Caucus Leadership to attend "State of the Black World Conference Planned for New Orleans in November" | Black Politics on the Web

- A group of national and local African American leaders gathered at the Ashe Cultural Center Thursday, August 21, to announce plans to hold the State of the Black World Conference (SOBWC) November 19-23 in New Orleans.

The conference, anchored by the New York-based Institute of the Black World 21st Century (IBW), is centered on the theme Return to the Source, Restoring Family, Rebuilding Community, Renewing the Struggle. A major goal of the conference is to focus national and international attention on the continuing struggle for fair and equitable recovery in New Orleans and the Gulf.

“We come to New Orleans with a mission: to help rebuild New Orleans; to express our resolve in helping in any way we can,” said veteran activist and IBW President Dr. Ron Daniels. “We understand that rebuilding New Orleans is an important part of what we must do to rebuild our cities and to rebuild America.”"
