Louisiana Progress is a nonpartisan organization dedicated to promoting public policy that moves Louisiana ahead without leaving some of its people behind.

Deploy allies, policy experts, academics, and practitioners into policy debates so that the progressive voice is heard and middle class values and interests are heeded.
Generate and distribute thoughtful, real time policy analysis and commentary to the media, opinion leaders, elected officials, stakeholders and the general public.
