About Together New Orleans-- Together New Orleans is a broad-based coalition of congregations and community-based organizations in the greater New Orleans area, with the capacity to address community problems large and small. The coalition is deliberate about crossing the lines of race, religion, neighborhood, and political affiliation. We work on issues affecting families and communities, and we are a strictly non-partisan organization.

Together New Orleans has three basic goals:
1. To build relationships across our community based on trust and a willingness to listen to each other
2. To equip our members and leadership with skills and practices to get results
3. To achieve change on concrete issues, as part of our common call to justice.
 
Together New Orleans is part of the Industrial Areas Foundation (IAF), the nation’s oldest and largest broad-based organizing network. There are more than 65 IAF organizations around the country, including projects in Alexandria, Baton Rouge, the Louisiana Delta, Monroe, and Shreveport-Bossier.

Topic--
With the current crime surge in New Orleans —and throughout the United States—political leaders and their constituents are voicing different views and offering strategies to make the City “safe”. How do we balance the need for criminal justice reform with our desire for safe streets? Will this surge in criminal activities bring about more discussions on investing in education, children, and community, or a concentration of suggestions and hostile strategies based on fear and retaliation? Is there an answer: more guns, more police, the National Guard?
 
Our presenter is ROSALIND BLANCO COOK –- Rosalind is a past New Orleans Coalition president, and a native of New Orleans. She currently holds leadership roles in the League of Women Voters / New Orleans, the American Association of University Women and Independent Women's Organization. Rosalind previously worked in the communications profession with emphasis on strategic planning, coordinating, and implementing news media coverage, public relations, employee and customer information programs and administrative processes.

During her time with the Regional Transit Authority, she pitched story ideas to local, national and international media outlets, which resulted in favorable coverage in numerous print publications, such as USA Today, the New York Times, the Boston Globe, the Los Angeles Times as well as segments on the NBC Nightly News, the Today Show, Good Morning America, FOX News, CBS Early Show, CNN and NPR. Rosalind worked in communications during the mayoral administration of Marc Morial and C. Ray Nagin. She has also taught political science courses at Tulane University, University of New Orleans, Loyola University, Dillard University, and Xavier University.
