Women's Rights in Louisiana and Beyond

Jefferson Parish Library

In light of the cancellation of the Women's March, we wanted to take this opportunity to offer education on the interesting history of women's rights in Louisiana and the status of the ERA nationally. We are partnering with New Orleans NOW as a partner in this enlightening program. Our featured speaker will be Dr. Christine Day, a professor of political science at UNO, who will address the history and status of the Equal Rights Amendment. Dr. Day is author of "What Older Americans Think: Interest Groups and Aging Policy", and co-author of "Women's PACs: Abortion and Elections". Her research has appeared in the American Politics Quarterly, Journal of Politics, Research on Aging, Women and Politics, Social Science Quarterly, and in edited books. She won the university-wide Early Career Achievement Award for Excellence in Research in 1993. Dr. Day’s current research interests include interest groups, women and politics, and political gerontology. NOSHA WILL CONTINUE OUR SECOND HARVEST COLLECTION -- If you would like to contribute, please bring one or two non-perishable food items for our monthly donation to Second Harvest Food Bank!

Sunday Freethinkers Fika - January

CC'S Community Coffee House

This has become an enjoyable social activity organized by NOSHA board member William Gautreaux. Bring your enthusiasm, your topics and your willingness to listen to your freethinking friends! "Fika", a valued social institution in Sweden, means taking a regular break to enjoy refreshments with your friends or colleagues. It's a great chance to visit with like-minded folks and discuss what is on everyone's mind.

Last Supper Dinner Club - February

New Orleans Hamburger and Seafood Co.

Dine with the Deniers in 2019! New Orleans Hamburger and Seafood Co. is one of our most popular locations in the history of the LSDC. They have a large menu, so you aren't restricted to hamburgers or seafood (see the menu here: http://www.nohsc.com/wp-content/uploads/ToGoMenu.pdf) *** Please update your RSVP if your plans change. It's very helpful for us to know how many folks are coming, not just for the restaurant seating, but for the folks on the waiting list. We check the RSVPs right up until the last minute, and it's never too late to exercise good manners and let us know.

Darwin Day 2019 - Meet and Greet Some Primates!

Monkey Hill Bar

February weekends are chock full of Mardi Gras activities, so we thought we'd sneak in a social event to celebrate Charles Darwin's 210th birthday! It's a chance to stop by, pop in and groom your fellow primates. We'll have birthday cake and you can buy drinks from the bar (including non-alcoholic, so don't let the location keep you from coming by.) It will be a low-key affair with a friendly "open house" feel. Come and go as you are. If you are feeling inspired, costume it! And if you're lucky, you might even evolve a little!
