This upcoming 2019 election is EVERYTHING and will decide what Louisiana will look like for the next 11 years, so Make It Fair has committed to hold a rally every Wednesday from Noon to 1 PM at 500 Poydras (in front of the Fed Courthouse where John Neely Kennedy has his New Orleans office) until the election to shine a spotlight on its importance.
Have you looked at our Federal Congressional Districts? They are embarrassingly drawn to specifically control the black vote and limit the Democratic vote in our State. Whoever is elected in our upcoming 2019 State races will redraw those lines after the 2020 census and so it's imperative we elect only those who will commit to drawing districts which truly represent our state. Louisiana has beautiful diversity and the 36% non-white, non-GOP vote has been drawn into oblivion.
Currently Louisiana falls at or near the bottom of every quality of life index and we've currently seen some progress up with our new Governor. Let's continue this trend by getting the word out about the importance of the 2019 elections.
Join us! The bigger the crowd, the more attention we'll receive. The more attention we receive, the more awareness we create!
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!

Get tipsy and tip the scales. Movement Monday is a collaboration between Ace Hotel New Orleans, DJ Chinua, Resistance 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 our guest is New Orleans City Council President Jason Williams. Councilmember Williams will be joining us to talk about his priorities for 2019, we are excited to have the Council President joining us!
