As an attorney with the non-profit organization Advancement Project, I have worked with residents from the Gulf Coast since 2006. This is why I know that no one can convey the dual experience of hope and struggle, the context of cultural pride, and the righteousness of preserving communities, better than the residents directly impacted. And so I turned to a camera, not a courtroom, to capture the voices of five extraordinary people: Darla, Stephanie, Mike, Harold, and Byron. My deep hope is that the heart and conviction that resonate in their voices awakens the consciousness of decision-makers…and quickly, because the problems facing their communities are urgent.
