Our mission is to create a better life for all of Louisiana’s youth,
especially those involved in or targeted by the juvenile justice system.
Families and Friends of Louisiana’s Incarcerated Children (FFLIC) is a grassroots, state-wide, membership-based, inter-generational organization working to transform the systems that put children at risk of prison. Through empowerment, leadership development, and training we strive to keep children from going to prison and support those who have and their families.
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.
Our strategically chosen goals transform currently oppressive systems and institutions into ones that uphold justice, build strong powerful families and communities, and advocate for our children and ourselves.
