COASTAL WOMEN FOR CHANGE
In response to Hurricane Katrina, women in the diverse community of East Biloxi began to organize, sharing information and resources to help their neighbors survive the homelessness, hunger and job loss that followed the storm. Across cultural lines, this group of African American, Vietnamese and Caucasian women have become a formidable force for social justice, as they advocate for recovery, and provide a strong network for the youth and elderly of the community to thrive.
