LCADV Celebrates 40 Years of Advocacy

In 1982, LCADV became an independent nonprofit whose mission was to examine the phenomenon of domestic violence with an eye toward implications and concerns in the future. This year, Louisiana Coalition Against Domestic Violence celebrates 40 years of improving collective responses to domestic violence and we plan to reflect on how we began, who we are now, and where we are headed. Join us as we highlight our progress beginning as a network for Louisiana Battered Women’s Programs to becoming the lead organization in the movement against domestic violence in Louisiana.

We are excited to commemorate this milestone with various events and celebrations throughout the coming year. We invite you to join us in celebrating the profound impact LCADV has made in ending domestic violence.

$40-for-40 Years Campaign

To honor LCADV’s past and to build towards our future, we are having a $40-for-40 Years Campaign all year long. We are asking our supporters to donate $40 in honor of our 40th anniversary. Every dollar you donate helps support our lifesaving work on behalf of survivors of domestic violence. Join us in celebrating this milestone by making your gift today.


40 Years of Effecting Change

In celebration of our 40th anniversary, we’ve put together a timeline of the movement to end domestic violence in Louisiana.
