New Orleans 8th Ward Homeowners Are Ready to Rebuild

Listen to archived Democracy Now programs at

In the 2/04 edition of Community Gumbo:
8th Ward homeowners are gutting their homes to prove they want to return, but local, state, and federal officials still have to come up with a plan to help them rebuild. Includes an interview with two 8th Ward residents who didn't have flood insurance for different reasons, and with an ACORN community organizer. ACORN is helping residents to gut their homes, and is organizing a Katrina Survivors rally in Washington, D.C., February 8th and 9th.
