Defending Life & Dignity

  • We champion the right to life and human dignity of every individual, from conception through adulthood and even into their final years
  • Our advocacy played a pivotal role in the historic overturning of Roe v. Wade, ensuring that states like Louisiana are able to protect life
  • We’ve also battled against funding cuts for pregnancy centers, fought for the dignity & respect of the elderly, and continue to support programs like Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF), which provide crucial support to vulnerable families and single mothers, offering a lifeline during times of hardship

Protecting the Vulnerable

  • We being together law enforcement, prosecutors, healthcare professionals, and advocates to provide comprehensive support to victims of domestic violence
  • Our Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) unit works tirelessly to identify and apprehend online predators, fight child exploitation, and educate families on the dangers of the cyberspace
  • Through public awareness campaigns and educational initiatives, we raise awareness on the impact of both domestic violence and child exploitation, ensuring that law enforcement and families alike have the tools & knowledge needed for positive outcomes

Did you know?

  • Every 68 seconds an American is sexually assaulted. Every 9 minutes, that victim is a child. In more than half of those cases, the assault happened at or near the victim’s home.
  • According to NCMEC data, 60% of children know their abuser. The rest are victims of strangers online.
  • Louisiana is ranked in the top 5 for female homicides — and more than half of these women killed by their intimate partners.
  • The longer a victim waits to contact law enforcement, the more dangerous the situation becomes. In fact, the most dangerous call for a first responder is one for domestic violence.
