Lift Louisiana Launches New Survey

Louisiana has been in the news nearly every day as we get ready for the Supreme Court to hear our challenge to a law that would close every clinic that provides abortion in our state except one.  But we have also seen an incredible outpouring of support here and across the nation.

Tampon Tax Protest

As you may know, Lift Louisiana has supported efforts to eliminate the sales tax on feminine hygiene products in the state. We have come close, but so far, we haven't won. Now, we're teaming up with Period Equity and LOLA to protest the "tampon tax."
