What: ServeNext New Orleans is hosting a meet-and-greet between local non-profit, national and community service organizations, and State Representative and Congressional Candidate Cedric Richmond.  The purpose for the event is to have the service community talk to Mr. Richmond about the critical work it is doing in New Orleans in the areas of disaster recovery, education, workforce development, service-learning, and others. In addition, we want to hear from Mr. Richmond about his thoughts on engaging citizens and volunteers in tackling New Orleans and our country’s biggest challenges.

The event is open to the public.  Please RSVP to our New Orleans Field Organizer, Tiffany Zapico, at tzapico [at]

Note: This is not a campaign event and is focused on having a discussion with Mr. Richmond about how service projects & programs impact New Orleans.  Mr. Cao, the other candidate in this campaign, has been invited but has a scheduling conflict.
