New Orleans NOW Message Board › Suggestions for the rest of 2011...?
New Orleans, LA
We would like to find out what kinds of activities you'd like to plan for the remainder of the year.
So far in 2011, we've had potlucks, a pool party and opportunities to lobby at the state capitol about anti-abortion legislation.
Anything you would like to suggest, please send it our way!
What could you help organize that would be meaningful for our members? What is your favorite reason or event to come together to discuss women's issues in Louisiana?
And here's something we'll be promoting....put it on your calendar!
Save the Date!
