CSED welcomes grad students from 13 Southeast Asian countries
Graduate students from over 13 Southeast Asian countries visited the CSED Environmental and Wetland research facility as part of their tour of the Lower 9th Ward.

Lower 9 ladies get fit with GirlTrek
Ladies in Lower 9 are getting fit with GirlTrek, a national organization of more than 35,000 black women that aims to re-establish walking as a tradition, healing bodies, inspiring daughters and reclaiming neighborhood streets. 
Labyrinth of Love gathering
Special thanks to Elder Turner and his church family from Disciples of Christ Christian Fellowship Ministry, his parishioners, and all of our neighbors who joined us to celebrate our "Labyrinth of Love", a donation from our American Baptist Mission Society volunteers.

Many experienced the true meaning of its origin, which is designed for reflection, meditation and prayer for our community and personal experiences. We hope you'll join us for future events at the Labyrinth. Stay tuned for more details. 
PAR Releases the Guide to the 2015 Constitutional Amendments
The Public Affairs Research Council of Louisiana recently released the PAR Guide to the 2015 Constitutional Amendments. The Guide explains the potential impact of the four constitutional amendments that the public will consider on the October 24 ballot statewide. This independent, non-partisan review will help voters understand the issues and the potential changes so they may develop their own positions on each proposition.
