ICYMI: Angela Rye gives Baton Rouge some homework

In case you missed it, political activist and commentator, Angela Rye meditated a Baton Rouge town hall last week. The event was produced by Representative Edward “Ted” James, Liberty Bank, and Leah Cullins.
Liberty Bank and Trust had a table set up for potential customers to receive more information on setting up a bank account, while there was also an opportunity for folks to register to vote and take a picture at the BeCaptured booth.
Events like town halls are so important to improve the city. Political commentator and activist Angela Rye hosted some family talk among some of Baton Rouge’s community leaders like Gary Chambers, Chief Murphy Paul, Ada Goodly, Councilman Lamont Cole, and Leslie Ricard Chambers, Esq. She also discussed not only how to stay woke in our communities, but also how constituents can #WorkWoke to gain some control back over the city.
Angela called on Leslie Ricard Chambers, Esq. to be a voice in the governor’s office to bring forth concerns that were brought up at the town hall, such as free labor from prisoners at the governor’s mansion. The crowd also learned about Ada Goodly’s program to teach young people their rights when interacting with police officers. Chief Murphy Paul also made a promise to host coffee talks with the community beginning in June. All in all, the community got a chance to hold leaders accountable and see how to #WORKWOKE on an everyday basis in Baton Rouge.
