Cornerstone Bus Project

Katie Hunter-Lowrey

Since 2011, NOLA to Angola has been uniting people in a 170-mile solidarity bike ride from Municipal Court in the shadow of Orleans Parish Prison to Angola Prison, and that solidarity extends way beyond the miles trekked on the ride. The ride focuses on bringing people together, no matter what barriers separate them. NolaVie's Kelley Crawford speaks with Katie Hunter-Lowrey, one of the ride's organizers.

This weekend, over 30 cyclists from the New Orleans area will embark on a three-day bike ride to the Louisiana State Penitentiary. The third annual “NOLA to Angola” ride raises money for the Cornerstone Bus Project, a faith-based initiative that offers free transportation for families visiting their loved ones in prison.

To find out more about the cause that this bike trip supports, WWNO’s Nina Feldman rode along on the most recent bus trip to Angola.
