Movement Mondays: Kick Back, Push Forward

WHIV

Get tipsy and tip the scales. Movement Monday is a collaboration between Ace Hotel New Orleans, DJ Chinua, Resistance Radio of WHIV, Indivisible New Orleans and various community partners to create an informal space for co-operation, discourse, and movement around a variety of issues in New Orleans and nationwide.

We define movement as purposeful intellectual, cultural, and ideological progress from uninformed to informed, from siloed to collaborative, and from passive to active. Held monthly, each Movement Monday will include a live audience taping of WHIV’s hour long Resistance Radio show (hosted by Kenny Francis and Dr. MarkAlain Dery) featuring an interview with a culturally or politically relevant guest and a post-taping happy hour (READ: with real happy hour prices!) for casual but purposeful discussion of the topics covered during the interview as well as an opportunity for action spearheaded by a local community partner.

Kristin Gisleson Palmer is an independent problem solver who gets things done. Throughout her career – as a councilmember, business owner, and non-profit executive – she has been a tireless advocate for New Orleans with a record of making a difference. As the mother of three daughters, Kristin knows the importance of safe streets and healthy communities. With over 20 years of experience in neighborhood revitalization, economic development and community organizing, she has developed and implemented innovative solutions for some of the most challenging issues confronting New Orleans. She is a leading champion of community-driven neighborhood planning and revitalization, smart growth, sustainable development, affordable housing and public transportation. Kristin played a leading role in rebuilding New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina. As Executive Director of Rebuilding Together New Orleans, Kristin developed one of the largest AmeriCorps and Vista programs and led over 10,000 volunteers to help rebuild Katrina-damaged homes. She developed an annual $6 million dollar rebuilding operation and leveraged over $7 million in public funding to create a model for long-term sustainability in our communities. She founded Confetti Kids, a non-profit that improves the quality of life of the children in Algiers Point through the renovation of parks and playgrounds, and was a founding board member of Evacuteer.org. In 2014, Kristin founded a housing construction and renovation company focused on reducing blight and promoting sustainability and smart growth in Algiers. 

JPNSI is a Community Land Trust (CLT) and housing rights organization committed to creating sustainable, democratic, and economically just neighborhoods and communities in New Orleans. For nearly 10 years we've worked to increase the range of affordable housing options available to low and moderate income residents and advocating for housing justice across the city.
