"The New York 2 New Orleans Coalition (NY2NO) is a “youth-led, consensus-based” organization in New York City who volunteer their time and talents to assist in the rebuilding of New Orleans. Actually, they do a lot more than volunteer. NY2NO lives, eats and breathes individual accountability for society and the planet by taking on sustainable living (and giving) projects such as food justice and environmental justice. They don’t view their good works as feel good projects, they view their good works as responsibility..."
