NEW ORLEANS IS LIKE NO OTHER CITY IN THE WORLD, BOTH IN ITS STRENGTHS

AND IN ITS STRUGGLES.

THE FACTS:

1 IN 2

black men in New Orleans will enter the criminal justice system at some point in his adult life 

44 PERCENT

increase in rental prices since Hurricane Katrina, compared

to 4 percent nationally 

NEARLY HALF

of inmates in Louisiana return

to prison within five years 

20 PERCENT

of black men reported that education or lack of experience was their main obstacle to finding work 

The state spends 

$700 MILLION 

on the prison system each year

52 PERCENT

of working-aged black men in the city are not working  

1 IN 5

homes in New Orleans are vacant, blighted or abandoned

Although these challenges make it almost impossible for one

person to break down all the barriers that lie ahead, we believe  

we can grow change together.
