The New Orleans Hospitality Workers Committee is fighting to pass the Work Week Ordinance here in New Orleans. This will give workers more control of their schedule, as well as provide 12 paid sick days.
We are being legally represented by Bill Quigley, a prominent & lovely civil rights lawyer, and have collected thousands of signatures throughout the city.
We are forming a Community Support Committee of community groups, churches, and nonprofits in an effort to get this ordinance passed. If your group is interested in learning more about all this, please join us on Monday, February 26, from 7pm to 9pm at the Broadmoor Improvement Association. Feel free to hit us up on our Facebook page or at email@example.com.
Now that Senator Kennedy has finally opened an office in New Orleans, it's time to let him hear our voices. Join us every Thursday at noon to bring attention to the issues at hand. Bring signs (and let's make sure we stay on the sidewalk). Watch our Facebook page for weekly themes.

Please save the date! We will have our diverse members from all parts of Louisiana come together before the start of the 2018 Louisiana legislative session. During this summit, we will learn about the legislative process, have some activities, eat some good food, and get to know one another.
On March 10th, we’re gonna party like our city, state, our country, and democracy depend on it… Because they do!
In a city known around the world for its parties, it’s time we make voting part of that tradition. That’s why we are holding the first-ever “Party at the Poll” to kick-off Early Voting Week. Come join us at Duncan Plaza across from City Hall on March 10th, from 12 'till.
The Party at the Poll is where New Orleanians will gather to get their vote on. Vote at City Hall, then step on over for music, community, and fun. Bring yourself, bring your friends, bring your family.
**Redeem your I VOTED sticker for a free hot dog and soft drink!**
This event is free and open to the public. Children welcome!
