Rate this:
Edited by the cultural director of MoveOn.org, It Takes a Nation tells the extraordinary story of how thousands of Americans came together to provide shelter, sustenance, and hope to survivors of Hurricane Katrina. Through MoveOn.org's Hurricane Housing website, volunteers brought aid to evacuees by providing housing, cars, jobs, clothes, healthcare, and, perhaps most important, community. Presenting a positive contrast to the national shame that was widely felt about the Bush administration's handling of the Katrina crisis, these candid first-person accounts and portraits are a moving testament to the power of everyday people to make miracles happen.
