During the week of Thanksgiving hundreds of people from all walks of life came to New Orleans and volunteered with the Common Ground Collective to help those in need in what ever way they could.

I worked on this video overview of the work of the Common Ground Collective along with several other volunteers.

WHO IS COMMON GROUND:
Common Ground Collective is a local, community-run organization
offering assistance, 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.

VISION:
Our work aims to give hope and stability to communities by: working
with them, providing materials, money, information and people working
together in rebuilding their lives in just and sustainable ways.

Our work within the collective and in community aims to be
non-oppressive and respectful to people historically marginalized in
society.
