THIS IS MY HOME
“This Is My Home” is a documentary about the fight for public housing in New Orleans. Most of the city’s public housing withstood the hurricane with little or no damage, yet thousands of families are still shut out of their homes and remain displaced across the country. “This Is My Home” is a tribute to the perseverance of the displaced residents of New Orleans, and it is a call to action for the public, politicians, and all justice-minded people to support their right to return home.--produced by Advancement Project, a democracy and justice action group working with communities seeking to build a fair and just multi-racial democracy in America.
The movies will be followed by a Q and A with Amy Flannery and Anita Sinha from Advancement Project.
