LCADV’s Virtual Legislative Advocacy Days

Despite the pandemic, we are committed to domestic violence survivors and the needs of our member programs who serve them. So we turned our annual Day at the Capitol event into a virtual event this year. We asked advocates to join us in meeting with legislators to discuss policy issues that impact survivors, get updates on LCADV’s priority bills, and be part of a collective action from the comfort of their home or office.

Our LCADV’s 2021 Virtual Advocacy Days was held May 18-19, 2021. Advocates across the state came together and made their voices heard in Louisiana!

HB 55 by Representative Freeman and HB 452 by Representative Davis are among the bills that cleared their final legislative hurdles of the 2021 regular legislative session, sending each to the Governor’s desk. A complete list of domestic violence legislation that has passed can be found here.
