Chasing the American Dream in Louisiana – Part Two

LPB’s Kelly Spires turned to the writings of 19th century French historian Alexis de Tocqueville to better understand the status of equality, community and the American Dream in Louisiana. Our state has seen two epic rainfall events this year. In part two of her series, Kelly visited Monroe to check on recovery efforts.

FEMA Assistance Update

It’s been nearly six weeks since the catastrophic floods affected 22 parishes in Louisiana. FEMA has determined flood victims who live in mobile homes should not automatically be excluded from the “Shelter at Home” flood relief program. FEMA spokesperson Ray Perez will discuss the progress and setbacks regarding federal assistance for flood victims.

Meet the 2016 Young Heroes
