AFT members affected by Katrina

The devastation caused by Katrina in the Gulf Coast states reminds me of the suffering of New Yorkers at Ground Zero in the aftermath of 9-11.

It also reminds me of those who came to our assistance during those difficult days.

In that spirit, I would like all of you to think about how we can help our AFT brothers and sisters living in Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama who may have sustained almost unbearable losses.

If you would like to help, you can send a check to the UFT Disaster Relief Fund/Katrina, 52 Broadway, New York, NY 10004.

    This campaign is a perfect example of the breadth and stature of our calling as unionists. In reference to an earlier post in Edwize, a comment was made to the effect that teachers demean their vocation and lose their focus by getting sidetracked by human rights issues, such as Walmart bleeding and fleecing its workers. The point is that “no man is an island”. The pain of all humanity is in all mankind’s bailiwick. The outpouring of hearts is also a “work rule”! Solidarity in charity!
