The Magnolia Project is a student, staff and faculty initiative committed to raise on-campus awareness of the injustices surrounding Hurricane Katrina and to serve the disenfranchised, low-income communities of the region by supporting political campaigns, providing mini-grants to non-profits in the area, and organizing service trips. We are a resource for all campus members who feel compelled to take action.
We are Berkeley students who are motivated by our personal, first-hand service experiences in the Gulf Coast to advocate a more comprehensive approach to relief work. We emphasize not only understanding of the immediate causes and consequences of Katrina, but also the education of its larger implications nationwide.
