Your letters can help

[More from Julie Smith's letter]

Friends & Family Letter

Dear Friends and Family,

I am asking for your help. New Orleans cannot rebuild unless congress supports levee protection that will not fail when a storm comes. New Orleans is an important American city. Would people say to give up on San Francisco or Chicago or Miami or Anchorage or New York because it was just too expensive to protect? Well that is what I am hearing from the media across the country and from individuals in congress.

The fate of greater New Orleans' levees lies with the committees and lawmakers below. Please contact them in some way and let them know that New Orleans matters. However you communicate, use your own words, and speak from the heart. Please share this email with as many people as you can. Maybe in this way congress will hear that America really does care about New Orleans. If, by chance, you know any legislator personally, please contact them.


Letter to Lawmakers

Here is a sample message. Feel free to just copy, paste and send it to all of these listed below.

Dear Sir;

I write to implore you to support legislation solely involving the re-securing and re-building of New Orleans. It is imperative that appropriate and immediate funding for the proper and timely construction of the levee system around the Greater New Orleans Metropolitan area be approved.

New Orleans plays an important part in the economic welfare not only of the area but for the entire country! North, South, East and West depend on the vital traffic of goods and services that New Orleans and its people have always provided through its port.

Thank you
