Visit Louisiana:The State We're In


August 11, 2017
On a special edition of Louisiana: The State We’re In, we examine our state one year removed from the catastrophic floods of August 2016. A family takes us through their emotional ordeal of fleeing and losing their home and where they sit a year later. So many state schools were left in ruins - the head of schools takes us on the path to recovery, and what about the next time? State and parish leaders discuss steps taken that could make Louisiana better prepared.

09/17 - Louisiana Veterans Coming Home

What challenges face our returning veterans?

Soldiers returning from the Vietnam Conflict in many cases faced a hostile homecoming. Post-9/11 veterans, conversely, have been welcomed with open arms. Despite the different reception the American public gave them, both sets of soldiers have shared similar difficulties transitioning back to civilian life. Last year as part of the Veterans Coming Home public media initiative, we explored the challenges that returning veterans face and the numerous state resources that are available to them.

Louisiana Public Square explores these issues in a special town hall event.

Airs Wednesday, September 27, 9:00 pm on LPB.
