We wanted to ensure that candidates continue to have the necessary data and research to build their campaign platforms. Watch the recording here!

As we head into September, we suggest you keep a lookout for two events! On September 28th, the Ready Louisiana Coalition is hosting its first-ever Legislative Session Appreciation Event at the Louisiana Association of Business and Industry at 9:30am. The Coalition's efforts to #SaveTheSeats were impactful for Louisiana's youngest children and we couldn't have done it without you. If you would like to attend, please register here!
From September 7th-8th, The Urban League of Louisiana is having its annual Empowerment and Policy Conference.
