Bridge the Gulf is a citizen journalism and new-media initiative designed to help Gulf Coast communities convey their stories and their vision for a just, healthy and sustainable future.

In the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, many endangered Gulf Coast communities felt their stories had been overlooked or misrepresented.

Bridge the Gulf uses storytelling to promote cultural survival, environmental justice, and sustainable development in Gulf Coast communities.

 

The website includes interactive story and data maps, a blog called Voices from the Gulf and a video archive called Stories from the Gulf. [Description from website.]
