There is a great need for experienced journalists to help report on the life and death stories in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.

Independent Media organizers in Houston, Texas are working around the clock to provide vital media resources for the families currently living at the Houston Astrodome and adjacent buildings.

People need media resources and skills to get their lives back on track as soon as possible. Radio reports will update people on recovery efforts in their hometowns, as well as, play an important role in informing people how to obtain basic necessities, where their children can enroll in school, how to access public transit and how to reconnect with displaced family members.

Bradley Stuart and Vinny Lombardo, two independent media journalists from Santa Cruz, California, travelled to Houston, Texas to share media making skills, including radio production and internet publishing. These skills will enable people to share their experiences with each other and the global community.

Please support independent media in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina by donating money for travel expenses, and to purchase important media resources, like batteries, recorders, microphones, blank minidiscs, cassettes, & video tapes, among other items.

Audio reports will be broadcast in as many communities as possible, including Houston and Santa Cruz. Text, audio, photo and video reports will also be published on and

To donate money, please send checks or money orders made out to Free Radio Santa Cruz with "Katrina Media" in the memo line. Or to donate online, please visit and note "Katrina Media" on your online donation as well.
