Nuns tour nation

The Washington, D.C.-based group Nuns on the Bus passed through Baton Rouge on a nationwide tour to talk to communities about social justice issues in their neighborhoods. Sister Simone Campbell toured the offices of the Gardere Initiative on Oct. 14.

Afterward, Together Baton Rouge sponsored a town hall meeting and luncheon to listen to the concerns of Baton Rouge residents, including education and access to healthy and affordable foods.
