Social Innovation in New Orleans

Filed Under: Labels: , , , ,
One of the main reasons I write my blog is to spark ideas for social innovation. So I get very excited when I hear or read about what other social innovators are doing in their communities. Currently, there is an innovative idea that is being proposed to help accelerate the rebuilding efforts in New Orleans. James Andrews writes on his Key Influencer blog that Friends of New Orleans is looking to bring a Presidential debate to the city.

The awesome thing is that the city has everything in place to make this happen, including the funding and hotel venue.

You can help make this happen. This campaign is targeting your Governor, members of the US Senate and members of the US House of Representatives. Click here and follow the directions.

In many ways it seems New Orleans is forgotten until it's time for a political photo op. There is still so much work to be done. This could be your opportunity to get involved in the rebuilding even though you don't live there. Let's pull together to make this happen for the people of New Orleans. The deadline is September 11th.

Empowering Champions,
Paul Wilson, Jr.
