New Orleans is rich in civil rights history. The Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.’s Southern Christian Leadership Conference was formed at New Zion Baptist Church on Third Street on Feb. 14, 1957. A photo of 6-year-old Ruby Bridges integrating William Frantz Elementary School on Nov. 14, 1960, became an iconic image of the push for freedom.The young protesters — Rudy Lombard, Lanny Goldfinch, Cecil Carter Jr. and Oretha Castle — who held a sit-in at the McCrory’s lunch counter on Canal Street in 1963 became the faces of a lawsuit decided by the U.S. Supreme Court.There are dozens of other civil rights heroes who put their lives at risk for the cause of freedom.

One in every five adults in Louisiana suffers from mental illness. Yes, some are strangers to us. But they are also our spouses and our siblings, our friends and our neighbors, or even ourselves. They live in affluent communities and poor neighborhoods, and they identify with every race, religion and creed. What is true for most is that they and their loved ones are often shamed into silence and neglected by a state that has the resources to end their suffering - but chooses not to.

Pennsylvania's nursing home industry has not always been renowned for quality care. In a 2016 investigation, PennLive found 46 residents died in nursing homes between 2013 to 2015 due to care-related errors. At the time, the Keystone State was ranked as having one of the highest proportions of poor nursing homes in the nation. PennLive is taking another hard look at nursing homes in the Keystone State and we want to hear from you. In particular, we're looking closely at nursing homes that were formerly operated by Golden Living. The Texas-based chain - long battered by accusations of poor care - sold off all 35 of its Pennsylvania homes between 2016 and 2017. However, there are signs that problems remain in many of these homes. If you or your loved one has any experience with these homes - good or bad - please take a moment to fill out the form below, making sure to include accurate contact information. No information that you provide will be published without … [Read more...] about What’s your experience with nursing home care? Tell us your story
