Staten Island Hurricane Sandy victims want elected officials to know what it's like to walk a mile in their shoes.
They paraded through the streets of Midland Beach on Saturday morning to raise awareness of the issues they still face after the storm.
Residents from other boroughs also marched with them in support of the cause.
This is the second walk of its kind on Staten Island. The first was in New Dorp Beach in January.
Residents said they hope these events will bring attention to their ongoing struggles.
"We're going to let the world know that we're not done raising awareness because unfortunately, people need to know that we're still suffering here," said Michael Sciaraffo, the event's organizer.
"Wherever Sandy hit, we are all in this together," said Charlene Davis, a Coney Island resident.
The walk ended with a cookout and block party.
