Update to FFL community on Confederate monument removal

The foundation did not take a public position on the merits of the lawsuit while the case was undergoing litigation. However, President and CEO Flozell Daniels, Jr. states, “Foundation for Louisiana strongly supports equitable placemaking strategies – ensuring that public spaces are representative of and honor the people who live in this community. In this context, we recognize that true racial healing cannot occur while these egregious symbols remain. In order to move forward on a path of racial equity in our city it is time that we address the damage done in the past and make plans to enter the Tricentennial year as a city with a shared vision of equitable opportunity, inclusive democracy and transformative truths.”
