2/11/06 Community Gumbo

Posted by schroeder915 on February 13, 2006

In this edition of Community Gumbo, a conversation with Lauren Anderson (2/07/2006), the Director of Neighborhood Housing Services, and a member of “Women of the Storm.” Anderson talks about her trip to Washington, D.C. with Women of the Storm to urge members of Congress to travel to New Orleans to witness the destruction from Hurricane Katrina, the array of challenges confronting home owners, the Baker bill, home owners who didn’t have flood insurance, the plan to reduce the city’s footprint, and the federal government’s obligation to homeowners.

Also, an excerpt from the Thursday 2/09/06 “After the Storm” forum, “New Orleans & Its Environment Before and After Katrina.”
