Announcement: Hurricane Sandy
Hello all – we realize this is extremely short notice and that this is frustrating for some, but this is the nature of the evolving situation with Sandy recovery.
We will be holding an emergency information meeting this Thursday (12/6) at 10a at Judson Memorial Church (enter at 239 Thompson Street and look for the Garden Room) to update faith leaders with the evolving recovery situation. As can be expected, there are far too many people living in houses with dangerous mold, and we will need to take a stand to have Bloomberg and city agencies recognize this and take action.

Occupy Radical Christian LivingSat. Dec. 8 Come to Trinity Wall Street at 12:30p.m. for an extension of Trinity Institute’s conference on Radical Christian Living. Gather at 12:30 in front of Trinity Wall Street for leafleting, singing and engaging with faith leaders involved with Occupy Sandy, Strike Debt, A People’s Investigation and more. [Facebook page]
One of the most important factors in this entire situation is that the Rockaway was an under-served community the storm has decimated all services, the most important medical services. Over the last couple of days I along with mental health professionals are working to organize mental health support in the churches. Although a group of concerned doctors, nurses and advocates have been on conference calls with the mayor’s office, no progress has been made to aid and deliver resources needed to avert the crisis.
The NSNYA nurses will be soon coming out with a press release on their assessment of the situation I hope you can spread the word and gather support of the interfaith community.
