The Louisiana Justice Fund (LJF) is a pooled fund housed at the Foundation for Louisiana.

We support initiatives and systemic reforms aimed at reducing incarceration rates, improving reentry outcomes, and dismantling barriers to economic mobility, particularly for Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) communities impacted by the criminal legal system.

LJF invests in community-led initiatives and organizations that are working towards transforming the criminal legal system through advocacy, narrative change, and economic mobility.

We focus on deploying resources strategically to drive systemic change and create lasting impact.

Collaboration, capacity building, and strategic advocacy are core values that guide our efforts to bring about lasting change in Louisiana's criminal legal landscape.

The Louisiana Justice Fund (LJF) has launched a comprehensive strategic vision for 2024-2027, aiming to tackle the persistent issues within Louisiana's criminal legal system and promote equitable justice.

This initiative seeks to build on previous successes and directly confront the state's historical challenges, by deploying resources to drive systemic changes that foster safer communities.
