Los Angeles-based playwright-journalist-Marine veteran Melvin Ishmael Johnson is bringing The Veterans Project to New Orleans. His mission is to establish an outpost in New Orleans where our national team can collaborate with locals and develop media strategies in the public interest.
Melvin will spend the month of January as the guest of onelove, a new artist-in-residence and community space owned by Cameron Melville and Jeff Parker, the philanthropists who founded The Vortex in Los Angeles. onelove is located in the heart of New Orleans, ten minutes from the French Quarter.
HomeFront Rising is asking for your support - no amount is too small - to help cover Melvin's travel/living expenses, and ensure similar missions will continue to be funded.
