FFLIC Young Advocates Board Application
FFLIC’s mission is to create a better life for all of Louisiana’s youth, especially those involved in
or targeted by the juvenile justice system.

Families and Friends of Louisiana’s Incarcerated Children (FFLIC) is a grassroots state-wide
membership-based inter-generational organization working to transform the systems that fuel
incarceration and to abolish the school-to-prison pipeline. Through leadership development,
organizing, and advocacy, we strive to keep children from becoming incarcerated, and we
support those who have been as well as their families. As mothers and fathers, grandparents,
siblings, cousins, aunts, uncles, and allies, we believe in and implement a model of organizing
that is people-centered, community-centered, and explicitly anti-racist.

Our strategically chosen goals transform currently oppressive systems and institutions into ones
that uphold justice, build strong powerful families and communities, and advocate for our
children and ourselves. From the street level to the state level, from our meeting rooms to the
Capitol, we are working to build a society based on the principles of racial justice, human rights,
and full participation through our tireless fight for justice for youth. For this reason, we seek to
build a truly democratic, multiracial organization with a membership base that reflects the
communities we come from.

This year, FFLIC launches its Young Advocates Board to collaborate and engage with
professional young Louisianans who have expressed an interest in and commitment to
FFLIC, its members, and the wellbeing of youth across the state.
