Since June, the Enrichment 2 Empowerment program has supported young people in understanding the root causes of violence and its impact on themselves, their families, and their neighborhoods. Engaged participants interviewed dozens of New Orleanians to reveal the reality behind slanted media narratives and discover hope in the present and for the future. This documentary screening is the next step in their goal of creating a social action campaign based upon their experience and insight.
This free and public event includes the documentary screening as well as discussion on Sunday, December 17 from 2 to 4 pm at 1045 Desire Street. Reserve free tickets here: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/this-is-new-orleans-documentary-film-screen...

This programming is funded by the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention and is part of their Youth Violence Prevention Centers.
