Kevin Krause came to New Orleans as an Americorps volunteer after Hurricane Katrina. He spent a year helping people restore their homes and eventually, he and his wife bought one for themselves. When it comes to the idea of losing his home to the new VA/LSU hospital complex he says, "It's depressing. It's... criminal." Kevin finds particularly unfortunate the government's belief that Mid-City is anything other than blighted buildings -- "they refuse to see the people who live in this neighborhood."
Kevin's video ends with a plea: "We’re sending out an SOS to anyone who can hear us. We need help and we need it now."
