This week a Biloxi, Mississippi zoning ordinance was introduced to the Biloxi City Council to push people still living in FEMA trailers off their own land. NESRI stands united with Biloxi residents, Hope CDA, MS Center for Justice and dozens of other groups who oppose this latest indignity. Advocates from across the country are urging elected officials to “Stand Up for Human Rights, Vote Down Proposed FEMA Trailer Removal Ordinance.”  Read a press release.

After a national mobilization of housing and community activists, today the Biloxi City Council Council decided to give FEMA trailer residents six more months to stay in their trailers.
