Help Nurses on the Ground in N.O.

Here's another good place to donate. Put union nurses on the ground to assist the victims.

The National Nurses Organizing Committee/California Nurses Association has sent over 100 RNs to assist the victims of Katrina and has hundreds more hoping to go.

$1,000 will pay the way for an RN to spend 10 days in Louisiana or Mississippi; $500 pays her airfare; $200 pays for much-needed supplies. Every dollar spent will go directly to RNs on the ground in the area. You can donate at www.CalNurses.org; by calling 888-397-0346; or by sending a check to California Nurses Disaster Relief, c/o CNA, 2000 Franklin St., Oakland, CA, 94612.

There's a nice writeup of the union efforts in this Biloxi Sun Herald article.

So help those in need and build the infrastructure of progressive outreach for the long haul.
