2022 Louisiana Legislative Session: Impact on Juvenile Justice, Criminal Justice, and Voting Rights

LCCR and our friends at the Power Coalition for Equity & Justice are coming together to discuss the 2022 Louisiana legislative session. We’ll be sharing key legislative victories in juvenile justice, criminal justice, and voting rights, and how they’ll affect you and your community. Among the highlights:

  • Significantly restricted of the state’s usage of solitary confinement against children (HB 746).
  • Successfully defeated rollback of the Raise the Age Act (SB 418).
  • Achieved major improvements to election procedures (ACT 548 & 652).
  • Created task forces to study ways to increase early voting (SR 151) and address voting barriers for people with disabilities (HCR 14).

Join us on Thursday, July 7 from 5-6pm CST for this Zoom community briefing as we discuss discuss how these victories were achieved, why they’re important, and how you can get involved moving forward. RSVP below.

Janea Jamison, Director of Programs at the Power Coalition

Kaitlyn Joshua, Southern Louisiana Faith Organizer at the Power Coalition

Rachel Gassert, Policy Director at the Louisiana Center for Children’s Rights

Davante Lewis (moderator), Director of Public Affairs and Outreach at the Louisiana Budget Project
