AC Dedicates New Orleans Building to Charles H. Tubre
In a ribbon-cutting ceremony on April 19, 2012, the Advocacy Center dedicated its new building on Oak Street in New Orleans to Systems Advocacy Specialist Charles H. Tubre.
More than 150 guests enjoyed a reception featuring music by a jazz trio from Loyola University and small plates of tasty local cuisine, such as crawfish fritters and gougeres meat ball sandwiches, from Rue Chow food truck.
New Orleans Deputy Mayor Cedric Grant dedicated AC's building to Tubre in a moving program that featured a speech by R. Allen Eskew, Principal Architect for Eskew+Dumez+Ripple, who worked with Tubre on a number of accessibility projects, and testimonials to Tubre's body of work read by colleagues and friends. Also in the program was the reading of a House Resolution by Representative Rob Shadoin commending Tubre's lifelong work on behalf of people of disabilities.
