Help Hurricane Katrina's Victims

Boulder, CO - On Monday, August 29, 2005 Hurricane Katrina pounded the Gulf Coast states of Alabama, Mississippi, and Louisiana. On Tuesday, August 30, the America First National Committee met and passed a resolution calling upon all Party members and the American people to reach out to our fellow Americans in this time of great tragedy.

National Chair Dan Charles said, "The devastation wrought by Hurricane Katrina is almost unimaginable. Hundreds of thousands of our fellow citizens have been displaced from their homes, many businesses have been destroyed, and cultural treasures now sit under a soup of sewage and seawater. Whole communities are in pain."

Mr. Charles continued, "However, the American people are a generous, compassionate, and resilient people. Together, we will overcome the chaos and great loss in the wake of this tragedy. We ask individual Americans to do whatever is in their power to help in this time of great need. President Bush must act now and return the National Guard from Iraq. By sending their state militias overseas, the President has stripped the Governors of the means to enforce the law, stabilize the situation, and rescue citizens currently in harm's way."

National Party Building Chair Tom White added, "In the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina these past few days, our hearts cry out for those affected. There is great need for food, water, and shelter. The devastation is wide; this will be a long-term situation. Each of us can help provide for the needs of our fellow Americans, by simply donating the cost of a few meals to private organizations helping in the effort. They need our help. We cannot bring back those whose lives have been lost, but we can help those who have survived."

The America First Party homepage has been changed to direct people to organizations involved in providing assistance. Follow the links and give generously.

The America First Party was founded in April 2002 and is focused on electing principled citizen statesmen who will preserve and protect our people and our sovereignty, promote economic growth and independence, encourage the traditional values of faith, family, and responsibility, ensure equality before the law in protecting those rights granted by the Creator, and clean up our corrupted political system. In 2004, the AFP elected two-thirds of its candidates to public office.
