The Community Engagement Team began their comprehensive outreach process in October of 2011.
The Black Men of Labor (BMOL) will canvass, door-to-door, throughout the CNI footprint most Saturday mornings. Covering every ward and precinct within the CNI footprint, BMOL will distribute fact sheets, newsletters, comment cards, and answer questions about the engagement process. A schedule of BMOL’s upcoming canvassing efforts will be available soon.
Contact the BMOL to see when they will be in your neighborhood next: email  or call (504) 233-4351
