The “Sociological Insights” series, created by the American Sociological Association, presents findings from sociology – the science of society – that are of interest to the broader public.

Sociologists Lori Peek, University of Colorado-Boulder, and Alice Fothergill, University of Vermont, followed the lives of children who experienced and survived Hurricane Katrina over a 7-year period. They assessed the individual factors and broader social forces that influenced the children’s recovery after the storm. They find that advocates are the keys to recovery.
