2019 SCLC New Orleans (LA) "Chapter of the Year"

The SCLC New Orleans (LA) Chapter TODAY!

image18

  With the motto: “Redeeming the Soul of America,” the current areas of focus of the SCLC New Orleans Chapter are: education; criminal justice; economic sustainability; and healthcare. Specifically, the Chapter has aggressively engaged in Voter Engagement to include registration, education, and active participation. In addition, the Justice for Girls Committee centers around assisting young girls to reach their greatest potential. Also, the Chapter partnered with the Peace Keepers of New Orleans to receive community engagement training. Another partnership is with the Louisiana Region of the American Red Cross, assisting with the “Sound the Alarm” Campaign which educates residents on the importance of having an escape plan in the event of a fire and to provide free smoke detectors. Finally, the Chapter initiated a “keep toy guns from our children” campaign. That campaign seeks to eliminate “realistic-looking” toy guns from area stores AND homes.

Anti "Real-Looking" Toy Gun Initiative

According to the Washington Post, nearly 90 people wielding "real-looking" toy guns were killed by police officers in the last several years. We submit, 1 is too many.  Help us get the message out to parents and guardians, DON'T BUY "REAL-LOOKING" TOY GUNS!

We are stronger together!   The leadership and membership of the SCLC New Orleans Chapter has been volunteering with the Red Cross for about a year with the Louisiana floods of 2016 and the tornado of 2017.  In addition, members actively participate in the "Sound the Alarm" Campaign educating the community on the importance of having a plan in the event of a home fire.
