About Louisiana Progress

Louisiana Progress is a nonpartisan organization dedicated to promoting public policy that moves Louisiana ahead without leaving some of its people behind. We advocate policies that strengthen the middle class, protect the less advantaged, equalize opportunity, and ensure that businesses large and small have the tools they need to innovate, compete, and create well-paying, long-term jobs.

We fundamentally believe in our collective ability to make Louisiana exceptional. Louisiana Progress, along with its members and coalition partners, will work to:

  • 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.
  • Ensure that reckless and counterproductive policies and proposals do not go unchallenged.
  • Offer alternative policies that promote economic opportunity for all Louisianans and act as a policy and research hub for the progressive movement in our state.

Louisiana Progress is a 501(c)3 organization.
