New Orleans officials and citizen groups sponsoring a wide range of activities to mark the first anniversary of Hurricane Katrina gathered at City Hall on Wednesday to tell the world they support one another's efforts to remember the victims of the Aug. 29 storm and share visions for a rebuilt city that offers every resident opportunity and a level playing field.
African American Leadership Project chief Gail Glapion, whose group organized the announcement, said there soon will be hard proof of that solidarity: a calendar listing every one of the commemorative events.
