Please share out to those who may need assistance! FFLIC knows that youth and families who are impacted by incarceration are the same folks who are often most pressed to find support, food, and basic necessities during and in the wake of disasters.

That’s why we are currently providing disaster support to families impacted by the youth justice system. Across New Orleans and Louisiana, families are continuing to recover from the impacts of Hurricane Ida and we are in the process of providing emergency funds to families and helping them rebuild.

If you have been impacted by Ida and need support, please contact gbwomack@fflic.org or call us at (504) 708-8376. We are able to provide emergency cash stipends for recovery efforts.

We stand in solidarity and love with the people of Louisiana.

"Appalling" was the right word when Gina Bennett Womack, FFLIC's co-founder and ED, commented on the treatment of our youth during and in the wake of Hurricane Ida.

In the midst of a pandemic, and now in the aftermath of Hurricane Ida, there is even more need to advocate for those most impacted by systems of oppression. https://www.indeed.com/jobs?q=families%20and%20friends%20incarcerated%20children&l=New%20Orleans%2C%20LA&vjk=8f77d14a08190196

FFLIC and other community partners signed onto a letter written by the The Promise of Justice Initiative, demanding to know why our incarcerated loved ones were left behind during Ida. The children in the Baton Rouge detention center weren’t evacuated. Instead, they were caged for over 30 hours without power. Until this week, we were unsure of the current location and status of incarcerated youth who were evacuated from the Bridge City Center for Youth, a facility that is still without power. Our pre-adjudicated youth in the New Orleans detention were evacuated then returned back to facilities to continue to await their court dates while the courts are closed.

As we remember 9/11 during these difficult times and as we face the challenges of the pandemic and Hurricane Ida, we believe hope, compassion, and freedom are more important now than ever. We must continue to lead our country toward the fulfillment of its promises.

WE ARE ASKING OUR SUPPORTERS TO INVEST IN FFLIC'S CONTINUED WORK TO:

Stop the school to prison pipeline to help children stay in school and reduce the possibility of incarceration, and provide training to parents and schools on positive behavioral intervention supports.
