Several groups are coming together to plan for a People’s Convention in New Orleans as an alternative to the corrupt, two party system. We want to create a venue within which the grass roots can be heard and can listen to each other. On the agenda are all of the issues that matter to us:  Affordable housing, job creation through public works such as rebuilding the wetlands, holding BP and the government accountable, ban the dispersant Corexit, homelessness, universal health care for all…no exceptions, end the wars, bring the troops home, end secret experimental programs, the school to prison pipeline, the prison industrial complex…

We are meeting this Sunday, September 9 at 6pm at the First Unitarian Universalism  Church to plan for the convention, at the corner of Jefferson and Claiborne. Please join us if you would like to be a part of this historic planning.
