Councilmember Jason Williams Issues Statement on Juvenile Intervention Strategies

Councilmember Jason Williams Issues Statement on Juvenile Intervention Strategies

NEW ORLEANS - Councilmember-At-Large Jason Williams has issued the following statement regarding the District Attorney's Office and juvenile intervention strategies:

"District Attorney Leon Cannizzaro is not wrong that early intervention is an invaluable deterrent to juvenile crime. But his definition of intervention is jail. His proposal to arrest and detain all juvenile curfew violations misses the mark. It assumes our options for intervention are as limited as they were twenty years ago. This is simply not the case according to the data produced around youth development, trauma, and the effects of incarceration on the greater community.

Council President to Bring "Undesign the Redline" Exhibit to City Hall

Council President to Bring "Undesign the Redline" Exhibit to City Hall

NEW ORLEANS - From Monday, Feb. 25th to Friday, March 1st, the lobby of City Hall will display part of the "Undesign the Redline" exhibit. A presentation on the project will be made to the Smart and Sustainable Cities Committee meeting on Thursday, February 28th. The exhibit tells the story of redlining and other discriminatory housing policies at the national level and in New Orleans that resulted in drastic differences in investment and opportunity for people based on to whom they were born. It weaves a narrative of cause and effect that provides context for understanding so many of the pressing issues the city faces today. Undressing the Redline will be on display at the Tulane Small Center until April 1st. This endeavor is possible with the support of Enterprise, Tulane Small Center, Foundation for Louisiana, GNOF, Fidelity Bank, Gulf Coast Housing Partnership, and Coats Rose.
