Your help is very much needed! We have lost half our staff due to illness and other unexpected reasons. Half of what’s left is going to help out on Katrina relief just before our event. We are fighting one of if not the most powerful company in Orange County. Just yesterday they illegally closed off historic daily used access to local lands thus spreading us even thinner.

Please distribute widely! This is critical for us! A lot more then I can say here is at stake.
