Greatness through civic engagement.
Keith Twitchell is the President of the Committee For A Better New Orleans (CBNO). CBNO is a multi-racial, multi-generational community organization that works to create equity and opportunity for all New Orleanians. As Twitchell notes, "Our focus is around civic engagement…
New Orleans will be great only when we have true partnership between community and government." City planning is one important focus of CBNO.
