    It seems like a really interesting documentary. It is amazing how much they accomplished as a united community; not only rebuilding at a much faster rate than other communities, but then shutting down the Chef Menteur landfill, and then one of their community becoming a member of the House of Representatives. I’m glad to hear a success story of a community using the “tools of democracy” to reclaim their home.

    Really interesting film. I saw a side to New Orleans I had never heard of before: East New Orleans, and namely the tight knit Vietnamese community. As far as grassroots EJ claims and action related to those claims are concerned, I feel like this is a model framework for which communities to follow. Of course there is much more the public and private sector must do to aid suffering communities such as these, but as far as being as self sufficient as possible considering such a terrible disaster, the Vietnamese of East NOLA had it down pretty darn well (unfortunately brought on by a failure to be recognized).
