No drinking water. No food. No electricity. No homes to return to. No workplaces to go back to. No schools for the children.

Most of us cannot imagine the devastation of Hurricane Katrina. The hurricane left behind massive, unprecedented and enduring needs. Immediate needs for rescue, safe drinking water, shelter and food are staggering. The longer-term needs—help for working families whose livelihoods were washed away, for the injured and for survivors—are hard to imagine.

Those of us fortunate to be outside the hurricane's path must help—and we must help now. The AFL-CIO's Union Community Fund has established a special Hurricane Relief Fund that will target help where it's needed most by working families. Please click on the link below to make
your tax-deductible contribution now:

Please give, and please give generously. We must match this human disaster with our compassion, and match our caring with contributions that will make a difference for traumatized working families now and during the long rebuilding process.

Caring about each other is what makes us strong. Let's put our values to work right now.

As an activist for working families, you take actions every day to help improve the living standards of working people like yourself. This is a moment when your commitment is put to the test.
