Rally in D.C. Wednesday!

Pittsburgh Post-Gazette:
"Now the two women have intentionally joined forces on a project dear to their hearts. They are organizing evacuees for a rally in Washington, D.C., on Wednesday -- the same day that Congress reconvenes to take up the supplemental appropriations bill that could fund the rebuilding of New Orleans.

The goal: to remind the nation's leaders that the New Orleans diaspora is still out there, and that its members want the levees to be rebuilt so they can return home and reconstruct their lives without fear of another flood.

U.S. Sen. Mary Landrieu, D-La., has thrown her support behind the rally and helped the women select the optimum date. Their permit for the rally was finalized Wednesday."

Update: Here's the website for the march.
