Immigrant Justice & Disaster Recovery in Southeast Louisiana

Uptown Campus

This panel will feature organizers and directly impacted community members from Louisiana immigrant communities and immigrant justice organizations. The panel will explore the impacts of Hurricane Ida on undocumented community members including the unique circumstances that many of these communities face with little to no access to federal emergency relief. The panel will also explore the role of undocumented and migrant workers during the rebuilding of New Orleans Post-Katrina and how the landscape of immigration policy has changed (or not) since then as the Greater New Orleans area continues to rebuild Post-Ida.
