Making A Real Difference In the Gulf Region and Areas Surrounding
MARDI GRAS was founded in 2006 by a group of students who had been “displaced” from the University of Loyola New Orleans due to Hurricane Katrina. In our short history, we have brought over 1,500 students to the Gulf Region to assist in relief work.
MARDI GRAS promotes participation in active discussions about social justice issues that affect our home in Milwaukee. Partnering with Project Homeless Connect, MARDI GRAS volunteers in various destinations throughout Milwaukee. Our goal as an organization is to bring the experiences of our travels back and best serve our Milwaukee community.
