What We Believe
"As mothers and fathers, grandparents, siblings, cousins, aunts, uncles and allies, we believe in and implement a model of organizing that is people- and community-centered, and is explicitly anti-racist."
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 youth are not getting the supports they need to thrive.
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.
