Watch “The Old Man and the Storm” on-line

In case you missed the broadcast, I urge you to watch the Frontline film, The Old Man and the Storm on-line.

The story of the impact on real people of the incredibly frustrating efforts to rebuild their homes in the wake of the hurricane is told beautifully. This is the story of thousands of our fellow citizens not only in Louisiana but in Texas as well.

We must resolve not to put any more people through this.

I started my commitment to housing justice for people and communities with low incomes in 1975 in Austin's Clarksville community. These years of working side-by-side with dedicated community leaders to find solutions to housing and community development challenges have taught me some things and I’m learning new things every day.
