A Presidential Debate for New Orleans in 2008?

June 21, 2007

Women of the Storm{Women of the Storm, in concert with Dillard, Loyola, Tulane and Xavier universities, has prepared a unique proposal to the Commission on Presidential Debates to host one of the three official debates in fall, 2008, at the state-of-the-art Ernest N. Morial Convention Center. Never before has a consortium of academic institutions joined in a collaboration with a non-profit grassroots group to host such an event – which attracts thousands of media from all over the world and has been compared to the Superbowl in its impact on the host city. The New Orleans application is one of 19 the Commission and its board received. A site visit is scheduled for the summer; selection of debate locations will be announced in the fall. We believe fervently that emergency preparedness, homeland security and disaster relief must remain part of the national dialogue. Nowhere in America is there a more appropriate spot to discuss such pressing issues as New Orleans!} From: Women of the Storm
