who IS LOUISIANA PROGRESS?
Louisiana Progress is a progressive movement-building partnership dedicated to informing, engaging and mobilizing leaders, activists, advocates, and policymakers to promote sound public policy and build a strong, progressive movement in Louisiana.
Our new logo incorporates an upward arrow to reflect Louisiana's path to progress. Progress does not happen overnight. Our movement is one filled with ups and downs, and our new logo reflects the progress we've made--and the progress that's yet to come.
