"The work of Citizens for 1 Greater New Orleans is critical to our state's goal of ensuring that all children in Louisiana have the opportunities they deserve to be successful, whether by pursuing college or a career. This organization sprung to action at a time when the city most needed its support and has since worked tirelessly to bring about much needed change. Their knowledgeable, passionate support for initiatives and policies that are critically important is indicative of what makes New Orleans and Louisiana great."
  John C. White
State Superintendent of Education


"The commitment Citizens made to being well informed and not just present, was so apparent in testimony provided, talking points and information emails. I have such respect and appreciation that your goal was to have accurate/factual information.

I have worked in many states and legislatures over my years in the political arena, but have never seen such a well-organized, dedicated, AND effective group of volunteers. I applaud you and the leadership of Citizens 1 because I know the hard work that goes on behind the scenes to coordinate people, messages, etc."
