From Southwest Houston to Spring to East Houston to the shipyards and back thru downtown, the team scanned the landscape of a huge city that experienced varying levels of damage. Much of the city pushes on into normal activity while many families and neighborhoods continue the intense and dangerous work to gut their homes. Mold, loss, and water damage are attacked by community crews. Black Lives Matter Houston (@blmhou) organized and coordinated a powerful grassroots effort to support families in East Houston still living in severely flooded homes. The unconditional solidarity and active, sweaty work brought people together in this Black and Latino community hit so hard by the flooding, and the local Black Lives Matter organizers created an incredible synergy of support and community building. #SouthernPeoplesPower
