This chapter offers a portrait of the resilience of the people of Louisiana as the author joined them in rebuilding their lives and literally remaking their state after Hurricane Katrina. As chair of the Board of Directors of the Louisiana Disaster Recovery Foundation set up by Governor Kathleen Blanco, he was able to help empower groups that had long been denied access to the corridors of power where decisions about their future were made.
