Gulf Coast Advocacy
Join the UUA's Gulf Coast Advocacy Email List
Subscribe to gulfcoast-advocacy and join advocacy efforts for a just recovery in the Gulf Coast.
GulfCoast-Advocacy is a moderated list of the UUA Advocacy & Witness Programs to share advocacy efforts, news, and ideas for a just recovery in the Gulf Coast area devastated by Hurricanes Katrina and Rita and by the lack of a coordinated and comprehensive relief and rebuilding effort. Action alerts on national legislation and organizing campaigns will be shared, along with stories of congregational efforts. Issues of economic, environmental, and racial justice will be addressed.
