After uncovering total failure by the U.S. government to meet the needs of communities suffering in the wake of Hurricane Harvey, Abby Martin meets the people who filled the void.

Speaking with volunteers who mobilized from out-of-state, to community leaders who organized relief efforts, this final installment of the Empire Files’ investigation shows how people came together to replace the failures of the system.

Featuring interviews with anarchist Scott Crow of the Common Ground Collective, the Black Women’s Defense League, Altruist Relief Kitchen and other autonomous decentralized relief groups.
