Race to Rebuild

Race to Rebuild

Ratings: (0)|Views: 70|Likes:
An analysis of the role of race in contributing to the failure of New Orleans' levees in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. The report, released in August 2006, analyzes data on the progress of rebuilding New Orleans' communities and current rebuilding policies. It concludes that current policies are both insufficient to assist low-income and non-White New Orleanians to return or to rebuild their lives elsewhere. It also shows that White New Orleanians would have improved opportunities, if the federal government responds to their fellow New Orleanians’ structural barriers to opportunity.
