Youth Service Trip to New Orleans
Organized by: Katie Edwards
EVENT DATE Feb 13, 2016
Continuing our long tradition of working with the First UU Church of New Orleans and the Center for Ethical Living and Social Justice Renewal (CELSJR), first begun immediately following Hurricane Katrina, the First Parish Youth Group will provide roughly 30-40 hours of service in a variety of ways. Projects range from painting/repair of family homes, labor at a community farm, working with animals at the only no kill animal shelter in Louisiana, and assisting with a number of local organizations working on social justice, eco justice and poverty issues. The youth also study the culture of New Orleans and address issues of Race and Institutional Racism head on.
