Faces of The Shutdown

We’ve traveled across the state, collecting stories of Louisianans impacted by the economic shutdown. From corporate executives to service industry staff, everyone has a story about how this shutdown has affected them. With hundreds of thousands out of work and suffering, these stories show the struggles that countless of our friends and neighbors are facing every day.

We are proud to present this series, which we call “Faces of the Shutdown.”
