*************************

In a sound nugget, the International Capoeira Angola Foundation - Oakland
is organizing a revel with a cause to raise funds for the Families and
Friends of Lousiana's Incarcerated Children who are providing living
support to the hundreds of formerly incarcerated youth who have been
evacuated from the Gulf Coast
detention centers.

The International Capoeira Angola Foundation - Oakland
( http://www.ficaoakland.org ) is dedicated to the preservation and practice
of Capoeira Angola, an Afro-Brazilian artform as a means to building
community.


FAMILIES AND FRIENDS OF LOUISIANNA'S INCARCERATED CHILDREN (FFLIC) is a
statewide membership-based organization dedicated to creating a better
life
for all of Louisiana's youth, especially those who are involved or at risk
of becoming involved in the juvenile justice system. Using education,
direct action organizing and peer advocacy to build strong, powerful
families and communities, and to fight for justice for our children and
ourselves. Since Katrina and Rita, they have been working to locate and
support all their members displaced by the storm and to reunite families
with loved ones who were incarcerated when Katrina hit. They are also
working with other groups to demand accountability for the oppresive
response to this disaster and to ensure a reconstruction of their
communities that lives up to the needs and dreams of its people.
