What can Staten Islanders and other New Yorkers learn
from the experiences and injustices inflicted on Hurricane
Katrina survivors to ensure an equitable reconstruction of
Post-Sandy Staten Island?
Michael Howells, a Katrina survivor and political scientist,
who has written on and been very active in various social
movements working for a just reconstruction of New
Orleans and the Gulf, will engage in a conversation with a
panel of Staten Island activists who have been in the front
lines of the recovery to answer and explore that question.
