C'est La Vote - Voter Registration Training & Community Planning Meeting

  • Albert & Tina Small Center for Collaborative Design (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Hosted by C'est La Vote

We are inviting individuals who would like to register voters, and groups who are already registering voters, to join us for a brief training on best practices for registering voters, and to strategize how to coordinate community efforts.  C'est La Vote is re-organizing and re-focusing on this important issue.  We will have water and light snacks available.

Please note, if you are already with a group leading voter registration efforts, and can’t make the meeting, we will be happy to follow up with you personally afterwards.  We’d love to be able to coordinate & support your work, if we can.

Complicit: We Demand Democracy Over Party

Hosted by:  Indivisible NOLA

Constituents call on US House Rep. Steve Scalise to defend our democracy against Pres. Trump's dangerous and traitorous policy regarding Russian interference in our electoral process.  Scalise's continued support for Trump makes him complicit in Trump's betrayal of and aggression against the citizens of the United States. Come stand with us to demand impeachment now.

We need your signs, your time, and your courage to resist the Trump regime's violation of the fundamentals of our democracy: the rule by and for the people.

Daring Discussions

Daring Discussions

Please join The Healing Center Daring Discussions and other political grassroots organizations as we explore how to turn dialog into action and remain accountable for our political intentions. Daring Discussions originated from The Woman’s March as a campaign encouraging folks to have hard conversations in an effort to find unity — not division. We are using this time to understand how to move forward as Daring Discussions and come up with some concrete ideas to move from discussion to action. (I.E. Voter Registration, political groups, etc…)

Hosted by: Sallie Ann Glassman

Please bring a dish and a neighbor
