"NOLA For Life" Volunteer Day (7/14)

Dear Friend, 

It is no secret that, for many decades, New Orleans has had a murder rate that is much higher than the national average. We, like most urban cities in America, have an epidemic on our hands. It remains my top priority as Mayor of New Orleans to end the cycle of violence on our streets, and to create a culture that celebrates life. We can and we must prevent murders. 

On Saturday, July 14th, 2012, I’m asking for your help to take back the streets for the first NOLA FOR LIFE Volunteer Day. Citizens, city agencies and the NOPD are teaming up to clean up crime hot spots in the community. 

Click here to sign-up for NOLA FOR LIFE Volunteer Day. 

The five pillars of NOLA FOR LIFE are: 

o Stop the Shootings 
o Invest in Prevention 
o Promote Jobs and Opportunity 
o Get Involved and Rebuild Neighborhoods 
o Improve the NOPD

The 610 Stompers break rank momentarily at Vincennes and McKenna, during last week’s community walk with NOPD. About 150 people joined the parade, setting a new Second District record!
