    Updates on the 6th Anniversary of Katrina

    Several pieces have been published in local and national outlets about the sixth anniversary of Katrina: Here are some of our favorites:

    Our friend Jordan Flaherty, published in The Root

    Feature article from the local daily paper, The Times-Picayune

    Important piece on Human Rights and Internal Displacement from the Institute for Souther Studies

    *Note: this last piece was re-released as Irene passed through New York City when it was announced that the Rikers Island jail would not be evacuated, just as New Orleans’ jail had not been evacuated during Katrina
