Abstract:

A new report from the National Council of La Raza (NCLR), concludes that the federal government and the American Red Cross are unprepared to address the needs of Latinos and other diverse communities in the event of a disaster. The report, In the Eye of the Storm: How the Government and Private Response to Hurricane Katrina Failed Latinos, also makes a series of recommendations to improve both the public and private response in future disasters.
