Gulf Coast Volunteers (#201)
Renee speaks with Doug Roederer and Meka Davis, who have been working to help lower-income citizens who cannot afford or don’t want to move out of Gulf Coast floodplains after Hurricane Katrina. Roederer, a Lexington businessman, talks about building a home for a family in Biloxi, MS. Davis, who works with the Lexington Fair Housing Council, says that much progress has been made, but more needs to be done to help the residents rebuild their lives.
Roederer and Davis say their frequent journeys to the region have changed their lives and had a profound impact on their views on race and poverty.
