Lending support & critical information for hurricane recovery


The Disaster Justice Network is working to educate our community on how to build back a stronger and safer South Louisiana. Over the last two hurricane seasons, our state has suffered significant destruction.

“Rebuilding the Boot” is a public education campaign through which the DJN seeks to share information that can help our communities learn how to use proven resilient techniques to build and re-build. Building a more resilient community that can better withstand storms and other climate changes saves our homes, our culture, and our Louisiana.
