10th Annual Katrina March and Secondline

via official website
Each and every year since Hurricane Katrina, we have marked the anniversary by organizing a community led commemoration. Annually on August 29th, we start the morning in the Lower 9th Ward, where the levees broke, with a healing ceremony and a reading of the names of those who died. We then march through the streets until a brass band joins us at our half-way point to lead us the rest of the way in the New Orleans’ Secondline tradition. We end at Hunter’s Field where we hold a rally with speakers and performers. Join us this year for the 10 year anniversary as we remember loved ones we lost, celebrate our resiliency, and advocate for our communities.
