NEW ORLEANS — Former Congresswoman Lindy Boggs will serve as the official ambassador of the Unified Nonprofits of Greater New Orleans, a post-Katrina collaboration of nonprofits.

Boggs was the first woman elected to the U.S. House of Representatives, served as a U.S. ambassador to the Vatican and is the mother of news analyst Cokie Roberts.

Early today, she spoke to a room of about 30 nonprofit leaders at the Ashe Cultural Arts Center on Oretha Castle Haley Boulevard in Central City.

'We were trying to think of someone who could represent what the nonprofit sector does and someone suggested her name, which made complete sense,' said Lisa Kaichen, who heads the group."
