Welcome to Our Neighborhood


By Christopher Louis Romaguera

City Councilwoman LaToya Cantrell brought up a ‘welcoming city’ resolution on Thursday, October 1st that passes anonymously. The resolution aims to make the city of New Orleans more accessible and to work with the different people, races, and cultures that have inhabited the city more and more over the last ten years. The resolution calls for policy changes that are geared towards helping people of different cultures, including those who are undocumented, in partaking in the city, as well as helping grant them access to more of the city’s amenities. As Cantrell said during the city council meeting, she “Wants to make sure that New Orleans is indeed an international city that is indeed ‘welcoming.’”
