At a block party in Far Rockaway, an area which was devastated by Hurricane Sandy, residents speak out on issues which continue to affect their lives, including housing, jobs, access to medical care, and climate change.

We shared information about the Robin Hood Tax (robinhoodtax.org), and asked them to share their thoughts on how the funding from a small financial transaction tax could help their community.

Their stories are heartbreaking and provide a glimpse of what they've had to endure, and yet these are voices of only one small community. People across the country have their daily lives impacted by the unconscionable decisions made by some Wall Street traders, banks, financial institutions and corporations.
