This movement is framed by a commitment to the following shared principles:
- THE PEOPLE CLOSEST TO THE PROBLEM ARE CLOSEST TO THE SOLUTIONThose who are directly affected by harmful policies and inequitable systems should lead the movement for change.
- GOVERNMENT SHOULD BE ACCOUNTABLE TO CITIZENS FOR ITS ACTIONSLouisiana is at its best when it fulfills its Constitution’s promise to “secure justice for all, preserve peace, protect the rights, and promote the happiness and general welfare of the people.”
- INTERSECTIONALITY IS MANDATORY IN POLICY ADVOCACYPower is built by working together across issue and policy areas, and constructing a shared frame for advocacy with one voice.
The Justice Alliance is a Baton Rouge-based 501(c)4 nonprofit committed to supporting coalition-led campaigns for social justice across the state of Louisiana through strategic communications, advocacy, and research.
