01/12 - Civic Engagement in Louisiana

How civic-minded are Louisiana’s citizens and how can they become more involved?

Louisiana citizens’ spirit of civic involvement places the state 12th nationally for voter registration, but Louisiana falls to 37th in voter participation. While the “Occupy Wall Street” movement has made its presence known in Louisiana, their events around the state have been met with minimal attendance. And although one out of every two Louisiana adults gave of their time to their communities last year, Volunteering in America, ranked Louisiana 47th among the 50 states for volunteerism. So, how civic-minded are Louisiana’s citizens and how can they become more involved? Join Louisiana Public Square as it examines “Civic Engagement in Louisiana” airing Wednesday, January 25th at 7 p.m. on LPB HD. (Taping, Tuesday, January 24th at 7 p.m.)

Anything about civic engagement catches my attention. Before returning home two years ago, I was very much engaged in deliberative democracy activities; yet have not found anyone with whom to connect in Louisiana. I have used the National Issues Forum Model extensively and have sat on their national board. Interested in making Louisiana connections, especially around issues of education

Current Topic

     03/18 - Making Schools Safe

Where does Louisiana stand in this national discussion?
The school shooting in Broward County Florida that took the lives of 17 people has reignited the debate over how to make our schools safe. Energized students nationwide are calling for restricted access to certain guns. Congress is considering broader background checks and age limits on gun purchases. President Donald Trump is most enthusiastic about training school staff members to carry concealed weapons.

Where does Louisiana stand in this national discussion? How would gun control proposals affect the 45% of Louisianans who own guns? What mental health services are available to prevent teenagers from acting out violently? What increased security measures should schools take and how much will they cost? Louisiana Public Square looks for answers to these questions and more on “Making Schools Safe” airing Wednesday, March 28 at 7 p.m. on LPB and WLAE in New Orleans. (Taping Tuesday, March 27.)
