To mark the tenth anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, The Atlantic will host an event recognizing the city's resilience while evaluating the challenges it and other communities across the country continue to face.
The daylong program will bring together New Orleanians, policy experts, environmentalists, economists, artists and community leaders for a day of conversations about the living history and culture of New Orleans. Conversations will explore disaster preparedness, housing, education, the environment, economic opportunity, race and resilience.
Since 1857, The Atlantic has helped shape the national debate on the most critical and contentious issues of our times, from politics, business, and the economy, to technology, arts, and culture. Through in-depth analysis in the monthly print magazine, complemented by up-to-the-minute insights delivered throughout the day on theatlantic.com, The Atlantic provides the nation’s thought leaders and professional class with forward-looking, fresh perspectives that provoke and challenge, define and affect the lives we’re living today, and give shape to the lives we will live tomorrow.
