Let’s Get Loud NOLA 2021
June 19, 2021 @ 8:00 am - 3:00 pm$50
LET’S GET LOUD NOLA is about keeping our streets safe and alive with culture! The streets are our stages as culture flows through our neighborhoods honoring and celebrating our history.
The one-day event is designed to build connection through representation and redefine community. We also aim to connect our network of supporters to advocacy initiatives; thereby, increasing civic engagement and Complete Streets programming awareness. Building community amongst our cycling, run, and walking groups helps to create a more vibrant and informed community.
Our campaign aims to support four specific areas: increase civic engagement, reframe improving infrastructure conversations for safer streets, promote cultural preservation, and continue healing our community through physical and mental health outlets. Reframing infrastructural improvement provides an opportunity for people to see themselves involved in city growth and meaningful placemaking. By engaging the citizens of New Orleans, we empower, educate, and create inclusive programming for our local neighborhoods, primarily communities of color, through the promotion of our culture. We want everyone to take ownership and “Let’s Get Loud” about safer streets, social equity, and cultural preservation through fitness and increased civic engagement.
