“When the city started its redevelopment plans, they didn’t notice that the Vietnamese community had already come back to New Orleans. The first redevelopment plans called for all of New Orleans East to be non-residential green space. So our community members organized.“ - Khai Nguyen, MQVN-CDC #GulfSouth4GND #Katrina15toRita15
Matthew, GCCLP (He/They)
01:07:23
“We had an environmental justice issue with the city deciding to place a debris landfill a mile away from the community, near waterways connected to the community. It was supposed to be for dry debris, but it was contaminated with things that weren’t supposed to be there, like batteries. This catalyzed community members to be civically engaged for the first time - to protest, raise their political voice. Since then, we’ve been raising our political voice.” - Khai Nguyen, MQVN-CDC #GulfSouth4GND #Katrina15toRita15

“If it weren’t for the Vietnamese community, New Orleans East wouldn’t have gotten its recovery started as soon as it did after Katrina.” - Colette Pichon Battle, ED at GCCLP

“These storms and wildfires are increasing exponentially. If we wait on the state to save us, we’re not going to survive. If we wait on the nonprofit-industrial complex to save us, we’re not going to survive. If we have hope it comes from each other - being there for each other in meaningful and lasting ways.” - - Jimmy Dunson, Mutual Aid Disaster Relief. #GulfSouth4GND. #Katrina15toRita15
