Your Call: How are people in the Gulf faring 10 years after Katrina?


On the September 1st edition of  Your Call, we’ll mark the 10th anniversary of the hurricane by speaking with investigative journalist Gary Rivlin about his new book Katrina: After the Flood.

The levee failures devastated the Gulf Coast and resulted in the death of 1,800 people. More than a million people were displaced. A decade later, what’s the state of recovery policies in New Orleans and other affected regions? It’s Your Call, with Rose Aguilar and you.
