This paper examines the intersectional effects of Hurricane Katrina in the US, and argues that the devastation as well as the inadequate state response has shed a light into systemic racism, classism and sexism. Using black feminist theory and radical planning theory, the author calls for a more comprehensive inclusion of community knowledge and a better analysis of intersection oppression in the study of social vulnerabilities in order to produce meaningful change.
