As the storm-wracked coast of Louisiana faces the fallout from another hurricane–with potentially more on the way–Oxfam is supporting our local partner organizations to provide emergency supplies and assistance in rebuilding to those in need.

Inequities and discrimination amid a stalled recovery process have left some people, such as those who have lived in emergency trailers since the 2005 hurricanes, as vulnerable as they were three years ago when Hurricane Katrina struck the region.

Whatever the impact of Hurricane Gustav, policy makers and presidential candidates must commit to a long-term recovery for the Gulf Coast that is just, equitable, and complete.
