Survivors Village is a tent city which has been pitched outside of New Orleans St. Bernard Public Housing Development since June 2006 in protest of the continued closure of public housing and plans to destroy 5,000 units in the housing-strapped city of New Orleans. Public housing residents will host a media exclusive tour which will give reporters a rare opportunity to hear about the struggles for the residents in public housing to rebuild their lives and communities. The tour will take reporters to various housing developments where there will be opportunities to speak with public housing residents and hear their stories. From those who have moved back into public housing to those who are still in exile, still denied access to their undamaged apartments for the past year, the tour will encounter a powerful cross section of perspectives.
