Sam Jupiter, Jr. is 91 and has been cutting hair in Mid-City New Orleans for the past 20 years. Because of the VA and LSU's decision to tear down his neighborhood for a hospital complex, he's now in danger of losing the business he purchased in 1988. When asked if he was going to fight to retain his livelihood he said, "I'm going to join with the people. We need help... We need plenty of help. I just hope we get that help."
Take a moment now to be the help that Mr. Jupiter is seeking. We're asking everyone concerned about these unnecessary demolitions to write to three top decision-makers. Take action now!
