Howard University: Still Helping Out Katrina Victims


WASHINGTON — Each year, hundreds of students from Howard University — the nation’s largest historically African-American university — forego home or the fun of the beach along the Florida shores or in the Caribbean to venture far from their hometowns to help people less fortunate.

March 2009 will mark the fourth year that Howard law students have traveled to New Orleans to provide legal assistance to those affected by Hurricane Katrina.

  1. This is just wonderful. I’ve been to New Orleans twice since Katrina and local resident trying to return have been legally getting hosed in every way possible. Lawyers are in desperate need to navigate this BS housing regulation mess.
