Understanding real issues

 Hearing from a community organizer and resident of the Lower Ninth helped us to gain insight into social injustice in new ways. The interactions with community members was probably the part of the trip that most resonated with students. Meeting with community organizers about housing inequality, education reform, environmental concerns, and other issues hit home for many students and helped them to understand the real issues.
