(KSL News) -- An advocacy group wants to know what Utah will do in case of any major disaster.

The Consortium of Minority Groups says Gulf Coast hurricanes have raised questions about what plans our state has.

Dr. Buba Roth, Director, Utah Peace Insititute: “As you know, New Orleans, what had happened, most the people who were left behind were poor people. Now in Utah, poor people, is just so happens are also ethnic minorities. We are not here to complain, we are here to call for help."

The group says it's not complaining, just asking to help plan for emergencies.
