CHAPTER DIRECTOR BIO:

Louisiana natives and sisters, Debbie Hopkins and Simone Lewis, are proud to be the chapter directors of the Metro New Orleans Chapter. As parents, they became concerned over adult content airing earlier and earlier on TV, “blocks of tasteless programming like Adult Swim on the Cartoon Network air as early as 9 PM and it is alarming to see your children stumble upon these shows and ask questions of things that they are not ready, developmentally, to deal with,” said Hopkins, “I am not asking to get rid of mature programming, but push it back later in the night or allow me to not have to pay for it.”

 

The chapter will give a voice to parents and concerned citizens by calling out advertisers who support offensive programming, filing FCC complaints and contacting local government representatives. Lewis believes that her community can take on this challenge head first, “Metro New Orleans and the state of Louisiana have some of the most involved PTAs in the nation.  People here are dedicated to our community and our voice’s, when focused, cannot be ignored.”

 

Hopkins attended the University of New Orleans attaining her bachelor in General Studies and her Paralegal Certificate. She worked at a legal firm and as a real estate realtor before becoming a full time stay at home mother.  Lewis received her nursing degree from LSU Medical and is currently a practicing nurse.
