Movement Veterans In the Storm

"We are the ones who've been treated without care, dignity or respect in our own place, our own country. We are the ones who will decide how to claim what we know as home — officials have engaged in — criminal neglect — and we call upon the world community to listen and support us."  — NOLA Community Labor United
