Lift Louisiana stands completely with immigrant families regardless of their citizenship status. We emphatically condemn the racist, xenophobic and inhumane actions of the Trump Administration, particularly Jeff Sessions, Steven Miller and the Department of Homeland Security and immigration enforcement. The administration continues to demonize those who wish to enter our country in search of a better life. We know that families are stronger together, especially when facing an uncertain future and fleeing trauma and oppression.
The biggest threat to Louisiana women’s ability to access quality abortion care is politicians in the state. That is the key message of a new public education campaign launched today by Lift Louisiana, a leading reproductive rights advocacy organization, and supported by the National Partnership for Women & Families.
Advocates for women’s health will host a Press Conference on Friday, May 18 to demand politicians focus the last days of this legislative session on improving health care access, the vital social services network, and economic justice for Louisiana women and families. For the last several months politicians in the capitol have failed to deliver justice for Louisiana women.
