Louisiana is taking a step backwards in racial justice. Angola is a living monument to slavery and institutional racism, and we must not allow Black and brown youth to be housed there! Visit www.nokidsinangola.com to take action now. #nokidsinangola #act1225 #NoMorePrisons

We deeply reject this decision and extend our concern for the well-being of the children who will be transferred to Angola. The judge’s decision to uphold the Gov's and OJJ's unlawful plan to transfer youth to Angola will cause irrevocable harm and trauma. Read our full statement on the judge's decision in this article. #nokidsinangola #NoMorePrisons #letkidsbekids

Listen to one mother read her testimony about the impacts of the Governor's decision to send youth to Angola. "I cry myself to sleep begging God to open doors for my son." We must continue to fight to keep her son and other youth from being further harmed and traumatized by the state. #NoKidsInAngola #LetKidsBeKids #Act1225.
