Do You Know What it Means to Miss New Orleans?

I'm very excited to report that I've been invited to be an AmericaSpeaks table facilitator at the Community Congress II in Detroit, Michigan. The congress is intended to allow the New Orleans diaspora to participate in planning for the future of the region, which was devastated by hurricanes last year.

From the invitation:

Facilitators are crucial to the success of the meeting and the work is varied, challenging and fun. Facilitators are responsible for drawing out equal participation from their table of ten people, focusing the group’s conversation and holding respectful space for difference of opinion. In community location and library sites, data collection will be challenging and so facilitators will need to assist with this work when not facilitating.
I'm looking forward to working with and supporting these folks in their efforts to envision and plan a bright future for their hometown and region.
