In this season of joy, we write to you to celebrate the incredible work that FFL has pursued in the name of freedom. We know how important freedom is to Louisiana’s people, and that freedom manifests in a myriad of ways in the lives of Louisianans every day. For this reason, FFL remains committed to the ongoing work of supporting community driven criminal justice reforms – from police accountability, to ending pre-trial detention, to prosecutorial reforms, to decreasing the number of people in jails.
As part of this commitment, we support the people’s rights to assemble – particularly in response to police violence enacted on our community. We support people who are arrested in exercising their right to assemble. We have a collective responsibility to support these freedom fighters.
Today we are asking for your help in supporting the freedom fighters who were arrested during the 2016 Alton Sterling protests. Will you donate today in the name of freedom? With your support we can expunge the records of demonstrators who were arrested and ensure they have the freedom to work, live, and thrive, without further persecution.
As you may know, even a record of an arrest can prevent a person from accessing jobs, housing, education, and more. An expungement costs $550 to file in Louisiana. An expungement will allow demonstrators who were arrested and now have a criminal record to have that record destroyed. Your donation can help make that happen.
FFL is committed to the supporting community driven criminal justice reforms – from police accountability, to prosecutorial reforms, to decreasing the number of people in jails. Join us in this commitment by donating today. Thank you for joining us in this effort.
Wishing you joy and justice this holiday season,
Flozell Daniels, Jr.
CEO, Foundation for Louisiana
