Investing in Justice: Truth Telling, Racial Healing and Transformation

Building:1440 Canal Street

Featuring Flozell Daniels, Jr., CEO and President of Foundation for Louisiana

Thursday, Sept. 14, 12-1:30 p.m., Diboll Auditorium (1st floor), Tulane School of Public Health & Tropical Medicine, 1440 Canal Street, New Orleans LA 70112 

Brief Description: In every sector of society, communities are seeking solutions to some of this generation's most entrenched challenges. New Orleans in particular and Louisiana in general experience nation-leading racial disparities when it comes to such issues as mass incarceration, affordable housing, access to jobs and entrepreneurism, coastal restoration and environmental adaptation. They therefore represent a great opportunity for today's leaders to recognize the healing merits of racial reconciliation and justice-centered action. Recently passed justice reinvestment legislation -- the most far-reaching in Louisiana's history -- will be explored in the context of Foundation for Louisiana's evolving work in the Truth, Racial Healing and Transformation (TRHT) framework.

Please join us for the Fall 2017 Health, Racism, and Communication Seminar Series. These in-person trainings focus on communication skills, specifically for community organizers, neighborhood groups, and public health students, professionals, faculty and researchers. 

All seminars are free and open to the public. All seminars will be held at: Tulane School of Public Health & Tropical Medicine, 1440 Canal Street, New Orleans LA 70112.
