New Orleans, LA

Family and Friends of Louisiana’s Incarcerated Children

Vision: FFLIC is working to build a society based on the principles of racial justice, human rights, and full participation through their fight for justice for youth. FFLIC seeks to build a truly democratic, multiracial organization whose membership reflects the communities they come from.

Impact: Through empowerment, leadership development, and training, FFLIC works to keep children from prison and support those who have and their families. In 2003, after years of work, FFLIC helped pass the Juvenile Justice Reform Act of 2003. This led to the closing of the Tallulah Correctional Center for Youth in 2004.
