The Mud on Their Hands
United States / 14 Minutes / Jason Whalen
Tyronne Edwards is a pastor and a 5th generation resident in a small, southern Louisiana town. His ancestors fought for the right for his family to live in the town of Phoenix, so when Katrina devastated the community, it became Tyronne’s mission to rebuild. But building houses and churches was just half the battle. After a lifetime of community organizing, climate change and protecting future generations from storm surge has become his new calling.
