8 am on a Saturday, 300+ neighbors and folks from all over New Orleans gathered on the Holy Cross levee. Such a turn out stunned all the K10 event organizers. In a mid-day interview with Lauren, she exclaims, “to see everyone, eyes closed and breathing together (pause) – we have all had tons of experience over the past 10 years and to all come together and get rooted in this moment, now. [ To say,] ‘ I’m here. I’m on the levee. I’m with my community, and I’m letting go.’ That’s powerful. You see that.
