HuffPost’s Listen to America tour rolls into New Orleans this weekend

HuffPost journalists are on a 25-city road trip for its Listen to America tour, and New Orleans is the last stop.

Across the country, they’re asking people to share their hopes, dreams, fears and definition of “being American.” What exactly does it mean to be American today?

The Lens is pleased to be one of HuffPost’s partners. We’ve been working on a major story with HuffPost that will be published when the bus rolls into town.

Sunday and Monday, HuffPost journalists will park their bus at two locations in the city to meet and interview people.

Monday night, they’re hosting a party to mark the end of the tour. Journalists from The Lens and HuffPost will be there to talk about their collaboration.

We invite you to participate in all the events. In the meantime, take a look at the stories they’ve found around the country and sign up for the tour newsletter.
