Once a month, the New Orleans and the Baton Rouge teams gather together to explore a topic of social justice. Corps members choose the topics, and each member helps to plan and facilitate 1-2 meetings during their service term. Meetings explore the topic at both a micro and a macro level, providing context and background so that corps members gain a deeper understanding of the community that they serve. Previous topics include the Prison-Industrial Complex, Education, Health Care System, Economic Development and Gentrification, Food Access, LGBTQ issues and more. Exploration of these topics is anchored by guest speakers, field trips and tours, documentaries, and other expert sources.
