Newcomb College and Louisiana State Museum-Presbytere Archives

Housed at Newcomb College Center for Research on Women are historical archives dating from the inception of Citizens for 1 Greater New Orleans on November 28, 2005. Documentation includes video tapes, newspaper articles, speeches, and photographs of our grass-roots efforts in post-Katrina reform. To access the archives...>

At the Louisiana State Museum Presbytere in its Katrina and Beyond: Living with Hurricanes permanent exhibit, the 53,000 petitions collected by Citizens for 1 Greater New Orleans advocating for the consolidation and reform of levee boards in southeast Louisiana are on display. Citizens for 1 Greater New Orleans led the successful reform movement through the Legislature, and the passage of a state-wide constitutional amendment enacting this reform. Also to be included in the exhibit will be a video highlighting this historic reform effort.
