NEW ORLEANS - Nov. 30, 2018 - PRLog -- BAR NONE NOLA is well-known for its amazing work in the Greater New Orleans area. It is a multidisciplinary arts initiative which offers people currently and formerly incarcerated, their families and friends, opportunities for healing, creating businesses, education, partnerships, and community driven justice through the arts. There motto, "Transcending Incarceration Through the Arts" gives way to the fact that Arts is at the base of all of their work and successes. Services provided by Bar None include a residency program that emcompasses counseling, education, leadership development and advocacy, and fostering earnest, lasting partnerships, in addition to providing preventative measures to alternative and failing schools and incarceration when it comes to youth. The overall purpose of the organization is to reduce recidivism by providing impactful opportunities to current and former incarcerated people in Louisiana that will allow them to "step into their greatness" as artists, serve as "Lights" (mentors) to the youth they serve, advocate for  those who remain behind the wall; provide a preventive platform for youth that fall victim to the criminal justice system, and more importantly, be seen as people.

Daddies, Donuts and Dialogue is an open forum that helps to start and strengthen the conversation about the importance of the relationship between dads and their children. It will also serve to help mend and rehabilitate relationships broken as a result of a parent being incarcerated and unable to physically care for their children. Partners for Daddies, Donuts and Dialogue include Healthy Start New Orleans, True Love Movement and Don't Even Trip Dream Foundation; Sponsored by Beauty N A Box, LLC. The event is free of charge to the public, however donations are encouraged and welcomed. Bar None NOLA is always seeking volunteers, as well as monetary donations to help continue its efforts to improve lives of those they serve. 2018 has seen a lot of changes for Bar None NOLA, especially with it Executive Director being diagnosed with a rare disease and having major surgery as a result.  It is approaching its second anniversary, with plenty of success stories along the way. It is employing an innovative approach to securing a new Board of Directors, divinely seeking out those whom the prison industrial complex as truly and directly affected. This includes individuals who have served time, a wife and ex-wife, fiancĂ© and best friend of incarcerated men, executive, educator, attorney, and a wrongfully accused incarcerated person, all of whom have humbly accepted and graciously offered their "heartwork" to BAR NONE NOLA.
