New Orleans Tent City Protest Invites Visitors for Hurricane Katrina Commemoration

Survivor's Village (, a tent city protest for the reopening of public housing in New Orleans, invites organizers and supporters to New Orleans for the grassroots commemoration efforts of Hurricane Katrina during the week of August 25-31. If you plan to be in New Orleans for this week, consider pitching a tent at our location in solidarity with our protest for housing rights for public housing residents. For more information on Survivors Village, please visit our website at

What to expect

Survivors Village is a tent city protest in New Orleans, which is still a disaster zone. It will be helpful if you bring everything you need. We have two portable toilets. Many businesses in New Orleans have reopened, but the immediate areas surrounding Survivors Village are residential. Survivors Village is on the 3800 block of St. Bernard Avenue, which is a fifteen minute drive from the French Quarter.

Please be prepared to participate in political protest and discussion examining issues of gender, race, poverty, and life in public housing.
For more information, contact Endesha Juakali at 504-239-2907.
