Welcome to New Orleans SSN

About the chapter

New Orleans SSN launched in 2013 to build more connections between local scholars, civic leaders, policymakers, and journalists. Our members are particularly interested in the issues that are at the forefront of ongoing debates in the community: education, crime and punishment, the environment, and persistent inequalities.
