Gulf Coast reconstruction in the post reconstruction era

Wander through New Orleans' historic French Quarter today and you might believe the revival of the city after Hurricane Katrina's destruction is complete. Restaurants, shops, hotels and clubs are up and running. Almost miraculously, it seems all is back to normal.

But no miracle has been performed here. Walk outside the French Quarter and you will see an American city and its people largely abandoned by its government and left in near total disrepair, struggling to reclaim some semblance of order and normal life.

On this edition, we will hear from four people speaking at the U.S. Social Forum. They are working to rebuild and strengthen their damaged communities.

Listen nowFeaturing::

Uyen Le, National Alliance of Vietnamese American Service Agencies Community Development Fellow; Sharon Hanshaw, Coastal Women for Change Executive Director; Viola Washington, People¹s Hurricane Relief Fund and the Welfare Rights Organization; Daniel Castellanos, Alliance of Guest Workers for Dignity and Workers Center for Racial Justice Organizer.
