Instead of helping displaced Katrina survivors return to their homes in New Orleans, HUD has repeatedly gone out of its way to keep them out.
After residents of the St. Bernard Housing Development returned home to clean up and reoccupy their apartments--units which have proven to be livable--HUD (Department of Housing and Urban Development) responded with a lawsuit. HUD claims that residents are "damaging" the units and is not only asking a judge to throw the residents out, but is seeking monetary damages against them! It's unbelievable and shameful.
Help the residents who are standing up for their housing rights, today, by calling on HUD to drop its lawsuit and asking Congress to investigate HUD's plans to destroy public housing in New Orleans.
