Do You Know What It Means To Miss ____________?

Today, November 16th marks exactly eight months to the day the music and cultural economy came to a screeching halt in New Orleans. It has also been four months since pandemic unemployment ended for upwards of 100,000 New Orleanians who earn a living working in the entertainment, hospitality and tourism related industries. The assistance from local government has been zero. Unconscionable for a city that brings in about $125 million per day from tourism alone, equaling billions per year. What’s evident is nobody is coming to assist us, even when our talents have made them wealthy… We deserve OUR FAIR SHARE.

I’ll say it loud: I AM NEW ORLEANS CULTURE!
