Mr. Wendell Pierce, in addition to being a Tony Award winning actor, has been a tireless supporter of the New Orleans community and its efforts to rebuild and re-establish following the devastation brought by Hurricane Katrina.

As the star of the acclaimed HBO television series, Treme, set in the city of New Orleans, Mr. Pierce portrays a native working to rebuild the vibrancy of the city and the lives of its people.
