Mandatory evacuation: NOLA 2 NY
10 years ago, an entire population was told to evacuate because a category 5 hurricane was headed straight for us. In the weeks and months after Katrina and the flood, many lost everything. 10 years later, New Orleans is still trying to rebuild.
Rather than focus on the devastation, we have decided to come together to talk about how our trajectories were changed by this natural and manmade disaster. Artists, performers, musicians and bankers will gather together to celebrate a city that felt like home, and tell our stories of change, triumph, and settling in New York City.
We are also raising money for Project Homecoming, a charity working to help people return to New Orleans and revitalize neighborhoods. We might be staying here in NY, but we will never lose our connection to NOLA.
Join us for an evening of food, drinks, and performances. I'm sure a second line will break out at some point, so be ready to dance, y'all!
