"Reimagining" Louisiana Conference After COVID-19

By: Sofia Gomez Alonso

Reimagine Louisiana is a statewide conference that welcomes congregations and citizen organizations to discuss the adjustment of state and local communities to the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic. The assembly will be hosted via Zoom on Tuesday, May 26, and at least a thousand attendants are expected. The first 1,000 participants will join the assembly via Zoom, and overflow participants will have the option to watch the event streamed live on Facebook. Governor John Bel Edwards has confirmed his attendance, and the Louisiana congressional delegation, city majors, and parish presidents have been invited. The purpose of the assembly is to address the rising challenges of life after the pandemic by launching a campaign called "10,000 Conversations," which will focus on three main goals: fighting isolation during a time of social distancing, understanding the firsthand issues affecting people in state and local communities as the economic impact of COVID-19 continues to grow, and building a broad and diverse community base that will bring about change and strengthen state areas.
