OUR STATEWIDE COMMUNITY

Each partner holds a body of work that informs our values, analysis and approach to moving the needle on the persistent systems that hold Louisiana at the bottom of most quality of life indicators. Collectively we work together to move an agenda that is informed by our analysis, work and obstacles. We have been able to accelerate our wins because of this joint understanding, informed advocacy work and economies of scale. We make decisions collectively and the Coalition table serves to leverage and support the individual work of each partner, while also providing support for programmatic gaps.
