The Strategy

Launched in May 2012, NOLA FOR LIFE is Mayor Landrieu’s cutting edge murder reduction strategy for the City of New Orleans. It’s smart, holistic and it hits the streets.

On December 8-9, 2014, over 300 participants came together for the NOLA FOR LIFE Symposium- a two- day dialogue designed to explore the broader issues contributing to the homicide rate in New Orleans. Leaders from neighborhood organizations, social service agencies, the local business community, philanthropic, education and faith-based institutions joined local and national experts to take on the hard-hitting issues that contribute to violence in our community. Read about the solutions here.
