Common Ground Collective formed in the wake of Hurricane Katrina, to provide immediate aid and long-term solidarity along the Gulf Coast. Common Ground is a local, community-run organization offering mutual aid and support to New Orleans communities that have been historically neglected and underserved. Common Ground's teams of volunteers include: medical and health providers, aid workers, community organizers, legal representatives and people from all over with broad skills from all walks of life.
The funds will fuel the need for environmental clean up, providing safety equipment for volunteers and residents alike. Money will also go to a school that's starting up in one of the most impoverished areas in New Orleans, an area still void of any school for children. Common Ground oversees these, and other projects, all directly benefiting the residents. Volunteers leave their jobs, their homes, and comfort for weeks on end, anything that we can offer to assist in their safety is a great service. Offering $20 to the cause is a small way to effect positive change in an area in great need.
10PM - 4AM / @ CELLspace SF 2050 Bryant St. / $20+ Donation at the door
