Our work is about connecting loved ones. Because no child should be locked behind bars and no mother should have to deal with this kind of state violence. We are envisioning and creating a world with community-based alternatives to incarceration where youth receive the supports they need in their communities. #NoMorePrisons

Don't believe the hype about our Black and brown youth! The recent public discourse surrounding Louisiana’s children mirrors trends of the 1990s, when a “super-predator” myth resulted in the arrests of untold numbers of innocent youth of color. The reality is that children and families in our state are not getting the supports and services they need to thrive, and are being blamed for the failures system leaders are responsible for. #protectyouthtopreventcrime #LetKidsBeKids Read our full statement on youth crime: https://www.fflic.org/7875/

The Governor and OJJ complain about funding shortages. Yet they are willing to throw away money that could be invested in the solutions we know work: prevention, rehabilitation and supports. Tell the Governor: #NoMorePrisons #letkidsbekids
