ReZist! — Roy Zimmerman Returns to All Souls (25 March 2018)

Please join us on Sunday (25 March 2018) at 7:00 PM for ReZist! — a Roy Zimmerman concert.

The cost is $20.00 at the door or pay what you can.

ReZist is 90 minutes of Roy’s original songs — a funny and forceful affirmation of peace and justice.

“Sometimes I think satire is the most hopeful and heartfelt form of expression,” says Roy, “because in calling out the world’s absurdities and laughing in their face, I’m affirming the possibility for real change.”

Find out more about Roy and see videos of his performances here.

Economic Development Summit with Governor John Bel Edwards (9 November 2017)

On Thursday (9 November 2017) from 12:00 PM to 2:00 PM, citizens from across the state of Louisiana will meet with Gov. Edwards and other public officials for a conversation about changing the narrative of economic development in Louisiana to focus on investment in US — schools, jobs, infrastructure, and more.

Governor Edwards has made changes to our state’s economic development policies as significant as any in the last 50 years.

These changes have the potential to represent a historic shift in our state’s philosophy and culture of economic development — from one oriented more toward corporate subsidies to one based on shared prosperity.

For that shift to achieve its full potential, this new direction must be supported, deepened, and institutionalized.

This meeting will be hosted by University Baptist Church (5775 Highland Avenue, Baton Rouge LA  70808).

Lunch included with $5.00 contribution — Register online here.
