Movement Mondays with Resistance Radio and DJ Chinua

Movement Mondays with Resistance Radio and DJ Chinua

Get tipsy and tip the scales.  Movement Monday is a collaboration between Ace Hotel New Orleans, DJ ChinuaResistance Radio of WHIV, Indivisible New Orleans and various community partners to create an informal space for co-operation, discourse, and movement around a variety of issues in New Orleans and nationwide.
We define movement as purposeful intellectual, cultural, and ideological progress from uninformed to informed, from siloed to collaborative, and from passive to active. Held monthly, each Movement Monday will include a live audience taping of WHIV’s hour long Resistance Radio show (hosted by Kenny Francis and Dr. MarkAlain Dery) featuring an interview with a culturally or politically relevant guest and a post-taping happy hour (READ: with real happy hour prices!) for casual but purposeful discussion of the topics covered during the interview as well as an opportunity for action spearheaded by a local community partner.

This month we are honored to be joined by the Honorable Calvin Johnson, the first African American elected to the Criminal district court who later became the first African American chief judge of the court and was instrumental in reforming the court, including establishing the first Mental Health Treatment Court. We are excited to talk to Judge Johnson about the progress that has been made and how far we still have to go.

Let's Flip Our State Legislature Wedesdays

Join us!

Let's flip LA!With the 2020 census fast approaching, our 2019 elections are going to determine our State's future and representation for the next 11 years. Louisiana is at or near the bottom of every quality of life index measure. Only with the election of our Governor, John Bel Edwards, have we begun to see this turn. Medicaid expansion, for example, is lifting our healthcare outcomes. Criminal justice reform has lifted us from being number 1 in incarceration in the world. We have a long way to go. Join us at this weekly event. The goal? Let's get a large, regular crowd gathered and attract some media attention. The attention will help to inform Louisianians about the importance of these 2019 elections and, in turn, raise voter turnout.

Let's do this!

Join us in front of the New Orleans office of our Senator, John Neely Kennedy, every Wednesday at Noon at 500 Poydras. Bring signs. Stay on the sidewalk!

Spend the evening with Mayor LaToya Cantrell as we discuss our city's future!

New Orleans can't become the city we want it to be unless we all work together to fund and improve basic city services. Mayor LaToya Cantrell has been calling for the city to get more of the revenue we produce, and we need you at the table on this important issue. Join us at our Launchpad office for a fun evening with fellow concerned residents and community leaders as we talk about the problems facing our city, and how getting our #fairshare can put us on the right track. Mayor Cantrell is eager to hear what you have to say and to have you on board our team!
