Green Party of New Orleans statement on monuments

The Green Party of New Orleans enthusiastically supports the efforts of the Landrieu administration to remove monuments to white supremacy from the streets of New Orleans, and we wholeheartedly endorse the efforts of Take Em Down NOLA in pressing the demands of this cause.
