What have we learned from the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina? What needs to be done, and what is being ignored?
These are some of the many questions facing New Orleans and surrounding areas in the wake of the devastation from the hurricane. And Campus Progress gave you the time and the chance to ask.
On Wednesday, November 30, Tom Daschle, the former Senate Majority Leader, held the first live town hall forum in our “Conversations With Daschle” series. Joining Sen. Daschle was The Hon. James Lee Witt, who served as the head of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) under President Bill Clinton. In September, Louisiana governor Kathleen Blanco hired Witt to aid reconstruction efforts in the wake of Hurricane Katrina.
Co-sponsored by the Georgetown Public Policy Institute, the event was be held live at the Center for American Progress in Washington DC.
Our video town hall forum was broadcast live over the internet: Sen. Daschle and Mr. Witt answered your questions that you sent to us via e-mail.
Thanks to everyone who joined us on November 30 both online and here in Washington, DC. And keep checking CampusProgress.org for upcoming dates and times in the “Conversations With Daschle” series.
