The Katrina Warriors Network is the diverse body of individuals, affinities, organizations, and institutions doing work to support and enhance the well-being of women and girls in New Orleans and Southern Louisiana, and
the gulf south.

On December 11th, 2007, 7PM, at the Contemporary Arts Center, The Katrina Warriors Network will be
holding a very important meeting with V-Day regarding the planning for
V to the 10th. This will be a great chance to come to be inspired
about the amazing events taking place in New Orleans, April 11th-12th.
This will be the best opportunity to learn more about the events and
become involved in rallying New Orleans around such an important life
changing experience.

Crystal Kile is the Assistant Director of Planning and Projects at the Newcomb Center for Research on Women, and is the Minister of Communications for the Katrina Warrior Network.

Troy "Trombone Shorty" Andrews will headline a program at First Baptist Church of New Orleans that matches him with the Louisiana Philharmonic Orchestra, the 65-voice Shades of Praise gospel choir, Latin vocalist Terc Martinez, gospel singer Susan King and others.

"We want this to be a night of healing, a chance for our entire community to come together," said Jerome "PopAgee" Johnson, who organized the event under the auspices of the New Orleans Music Hall of Fame. "We want the picture on stage to show how music can be a force to bring us together. These aren't musicians who would usually be collaborating."

Music Played:
Mariee Sioux, "Wizard Flurry Home."

Common, "Love is ..."

Trombone Shorty
