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.
