Our streets average over 16 murders a month and we barely blink an eye. Every morning, violent headlines come as no surprise. Overnight, the vicious cycle continues to devastate our dreams, our businesses and our way of life before claiming even more of our sons and daughters
NOLA, We Have a Problem
The Hot 8 Brass Band recommits itself to bringing people together through their unique brand of music to celebrate, to heal, and to learn.
The solution starts with us
Artist and Graphic Designer
Ayo Scott grew up in the New Orleans art community learning and working alongside his father, John T. Scott, the renowned sculptor, 40-year art professor and recipient of the McArthur Genius Fellowship. He is making a name for himself as an artist, graphic designer and entrepreneur whose company, NOYO Designs, sells original artwork and clothing. Scott created a unique graphic tee to raise awareness and funds for the NOLA FOR LIFE campaign.
The NOLA for Life Plan
1) Stop the Shootings
2) Invest in Prevention
3) Promote Jobs and Opportunity
4) Get Involved and Rebuild Neighborhoods
5) Improve the NOPD
At 8x the national average, New Orleans’ murder rate has crippled our culture and left us living in fear. But the senseless violence won't strip us of our fight.
Enough is Enough
We’re taking a comprehensive approach to winning back our corners by introducing NOLA FOR LIFE and encouraging all of our citizens to help flip the script.
