For Us, By Us. Health Care after Katrina

Hurricane Katrina, which struck the Gulf Coast in August 2005, ranks among the costliest disasters in lost human lives and destroyed property in U.S. history. And while a full three years have passed since the storm, New Orleans and the surrounding region are still in a state of "rebuilding". But what does that mean in real terms for many of its citizens?  How does this ongoing state of recovery translate into the daily lives of the city’s marginalized populations? Migrants. Communities of color. Working class women. Queer and transgendered people.
