EDIT as of Aug 28: Tomorrow marks 15 years of ongoing recovery from Hurricane Katrina. The Gulf South for Green New Deal regional initiative and other community leaders from across the Gulf South have been planning for months to commemorate the day and honor the sacrifice of the region in the global fight for climate justice. We know that disaster changes things, and most importantly, we must move our ego and attachment to the side when the moment calls us to acknowledge and address the impact of harm. In solidarity with our family recovering from Hurricane Laura which made landfall on the Louisiana central coast this week, we are shifting our #Katrina15 programming to center the frontlines impacted by Hurricane Laura, offer lessons learned from 15 years of ongoing recovery from Hurricane Katrina, and share disaster recovery resources and ways to stand in solidarity with communities in Louisiana and Texas. Register here to join us for an abbreviated virtual program, Saturday, Aug. 29, 2020 at 10amCDT.
Join Gulf South frontline communities as we commemorate 15 years of ongoing recovery since Hurricane Katrina.
Convening organizations include the Gulf Coast Center for Law & Policy, Ashe Cultural Arts Center, Common Ground Collective, Veterans for Peace, Institute for Women & Ethnic Studies, Alliance for Affordable Energy, MQVN CDC, Center for Sustainable Engagement & Development in the Lower 9, Wind & Warrior Collective, Breath is Life, Foundation for Louisiana, Nfungotah Inc, and more.
