Hurricane Katrina has made evident the urgent need for a grassroots means of communication. The devastation has been brought on by both the natural disaster and the negligence of bureaucracies throughout the political spectrum (both before and after the disaster). As a result people have been left to their own devices to deal with the situation. Let's empower ourselves and make the best of this vacuum. This grassroot wiki site is crucial so that People Affected by Hurricane Katrina can help themselves, and hold institutions accountable, by providing a direct expression of their needs.
Listed below are Hurricane Katrina affected areas. These links have a listing of people who originated from those areas pre-Hurricane Katrina. These people-links link to a page within which the current status of the person in question is: Whether alive or not, where residing now, status of original home, whether owned or not, if not how much for rent?, what is keeping from going back?, listing of family members who you don't know about, short history of your experience after Katrina, listing of organizations that you have benefited from or not and why, feelings about governmental response, Organizations, Events, Issues and Projects that you are involved with.
An example of the general format for use of templates can be found in the Kenner, Louisiana page where Doe, John is listed. If you are entering a new person's information then first create an entry in the appropriate Hurricane-Katrina-affected-area-location-of-origin of the person, and secondly, cut and paste from the edit box of Doe, John into the edit box of the new entry. Fill in the information as appropriate for the new personal entry.
