A Preview of Rising Tide 7

Every year, Rising Tide provides a unique forum for the critical examination of the city's most pressing issues and greatest assets. From our early years as a conference, pointing a lens at recovery efforts that fell short, Rising Tide's mission has been to gather and amplify citizen voices in service to building a greater future for New Orleans based on a thorough examination and active discussion of the issues facing our city now and in the future.

This year's conference will continue in that tradition. The recent restructuring of the Times-Picayune, and its untold effects on journalism, truth-telling, and democracy in New Orleans, will be discussed on the main stage. Participants will be announced in a future email.

Rising Tide will once again feature an additional stage of programming. We are excited to announce the following panels:
This is just a small portion of the incredible programming we will feature on Saturday, September 22nd at Xavier University. Register this weekend for the lowest possible price and we will see you there!
