Ten Years after Katrina – Intersections and Action

What do #BlackLivesMatter and environmental justice have to do with each other? Everything.

When Katrina—a Category 5 hurricane that's part of the pattern of more frequent and severe weather events predicted by leading climatologists due to global warming—made landfall on August 29, 2005, the impact was beyond devastating. But it was not felt equally by everyone in the storm’s path.

The neighborhoods hit hardest, the people who were unable to evacuate, the horrifyingly inadequate federal response, the media coverage of the survivors, and the rebuilding efforts all point to the fact that all lives did not and do not matter to our government or to the media. Poor people, disproportionately African American people, bore the greatest impacts of the storm.

And this week we are showing up for a week of action organized by Gulf South Rising in conjunction with the commemoration of ten years since Katrina. Here’s what we are up to:

  • Sunday, August 23: “Hope and Faith in Post-Katrina New Orleans,” a worship service at First UU Church of New Orleans with guest speakers Prof. Charles and Rev. Kathy Figley
  • Monday, August 24: Katrina Commemorative Interfaith Prayer Service at the St. Louis Cathedral
  • Saturday, August 29: Gratitude Day at Community Church UU, and Katrina Commemoration Dinner at First UU Church, with a ritual of sharing readings, stories, and foods in the fashion of a Jewish Seder (livestreamed starting at 5:45pm Central).   
  • Sunday, August 30: “Reaching Beyond,” a worship service at First UU Church with guest speaker Rev. Marta Valentin, minister of First UU Church when Katrina hit, and “Rounding the 10-Year Bend!,” a worship service at Community Church centered around a water ceremony

There is a new UUA video on the website of the Unitarian Universalist Association about the three churches of the Greater New Orleans UU cluster and the Center for Ethical Living and Social Justice Renewal!

Unitarian Universalists Rebuild New Orleans (approx. 8 minutes)

YouTube video

The three Unitarian Universalist (UU) congregations in New Orleans, like the city itself, were devastated by Hurricane Katrina. However that devastation became an inspiration, not an obstacle, to the members of all three churches. Their resilience and determination have been in evidence every day of the last five years as they rebuild not only their churches, but the city of New Orleans itself.
