Racism and intolerance are problems that have plagued our communities and our nation for far too long. It’s time we all take a hard stance against it. The events of the last few months have highlighted the disparities, undue police brutality and systematic racism against Black people. The Shreveport-Bossier Convention and Tourist Bureau wants our staff, partners, clients, and visitors to know that we condemn racism in any form and support fairer and more just treatment for Black people and all people marginalized and discriminated against for any reason. We want to promote unity and peace within our community.
