Getcha asses movin to Risin’ Tide! And let’s fix the biggest goddamn crisis in the history of this country! Excuse my French everybody in America!
Rising Tide 2 is a conference, a party and an opportunity to learn where New Orleans stands two years after the failure of the federally-built levees following Hurricane Katrina. The weekend schedule of events is organized and presented by New Orleans bloggers in an effort to bring real-life activism to their online visibility. This year, Rising Tide will present author Dave Zirin, engineer Timothy Ruppert ,“Fix the Pumps” author Matt McBride, and panel discussions featuring New Orleans bloggers, authors, community activists and political muckrakers. Naturally, there’s a party, and on Saturday we’ll have lunch from legendary New Orleans restaurant Dunbar’s.
