April’s Meeting and Community March Against Violence

Dear Carrollton neighbor,

Our next CRNA Board meeting will be held on Thursday, April 11, 2013 7PM in the cafeteria in the Stuart Hall School for Boys, 2032 S Carrollton Ave  New Orleans, LA 70118.  Meetings are open to the public (usually monthly on 2nd Thursday).   The agenda will include discussion of the murder of Joseph Massenburg on the corner of Birch and Eagle, and planning for the General Meeting.

Please see announcement below for one of the events that is happening in reaction to the murder of Joseph Masssenburg:

Late Monday night, an AmeriCorps member who had come to New Orleans to live and serve in the community was shot and killed in the Carrollton neighborhood. For those who are outraged by this and other acts of violence that occur regularly throughout our city, there will be a silent candlelight vigil and march to demonstrate our strength as a community and our support of those who dedicate their lives to service. The Community March Against Violence is a community solidarity event, not a memorial service. It will not be used as a forum for discussion, interviews, or speeches.

Those interested in attending should meet at the corner of Jeannette and Dublin Street on Sunday, April 7th at 8pm. The Community March Against Violence will proceed down Jeannette, turn right onto Eagle, and return towards Carrollton on Birch. Please bring your own candle.

For those of you who wish to attend but cannot, feel free to join in spirit by lighting a candle wherever you are.

For questions about this event, contact Andreas Hoffmann at 504-342-4966.

Thank you,

Your neighbors on the Carrollton-Riverbend Neighborhood Association Board
