Zachary Zill chose to work with Harlem 50 as his semester-long service learning project. He was also traveled to Louisiana on September 15th with eight other students from New York City as part of a "Relief Not War" caravan.
"We went not only to participate in direct grassroots relief, but also to see for ourselves the man-made disaster caused by Hurricane Katrina. Before we left, we had raised $7,000 which we used to buy much-needed supplies, such as food, water, medicine, personal care and baby care items. We camped out in Covington, just north of New Orleans, and during the day we delivered supplies to people in the surrounding areas. We worked closely with activist Malik Rahim, a former Black Panther and the co-founder of Louisiana Green Party, who lives in the Algiers neighborhood of New Orleans."
