ABOUT THE ASSEMBLY
The current crisis demands not merely that we “return to how things were.” It demands that we Reimagine Louisiana as the kind of community our faith and democratic traditions call us to create.
To bring together 1,000 leaders of congregations and citizens organizations across the state, across the lines of race, geography and political affiliation, to commit to work together to improve our State and local communities.
The event will launch a campaign called “10,000 CONVERSATIONS,” which has 3 goals:
1) to fight isolation in a time of social distancing
2) to understand first-hand the issues affecting people in our communities as the economic impact of covid-19 deepens
3) to build a base of community sufficiently broad and diverse to bring about change that will strengthen our state and local areas.
The public at large is invited, but the most important attendees will be organized delegations from congregations and non-profit organizations throughout Louisiana. We're expecting about 1,000 people.
Governor John Bel Edwards has confirmed his attendance and we are inviting the Louisiana Congressional delegation and the Mayors and parish presidents of areas represented at the Assembly.
If you want to sign up a congregation or organization as a participating institution, or if you would like personally to register to attend, fill out the registration form here.
The first 1,000 participants will join the Assembly by Zoom. Overflow participants will be able to join the event streamed to Facebook Live.
