- Monday, March 4th, 6:30 PM, at the Unitarian Church of Baton Rouge, 8470 Goodwood Blvd., there will be a Citywide Civic Academy on Healthcare and Medicaid Expansion in Louisiana. At this gathering, the Healthcare Team of Together Baton Rouge will share, for the first time, a presentation about healthcare in our State, including a detailed analysis of the issue of expanding Medicaid to cover several hundred thousand people in our State. This is an incredibly important issue for our State, and accurate information is the precondition to informed public discourse. If you plan to attend on Monday, March 4th, please email email@example.com, and put "Healthcare" in the subject heading.

Thanks to all of our church members that participated with Together Baton Rouge in our effort to bring transit reform to our city. The relationships we have formed by engaging with other churches and non-profits will be invaluable in the future. There is still much work to do to be done. This is only the beginning. There will be many more volunteer opportunities. Stay tuned for our next mission to make this a better world.
