About Louisianans for Responsible Reform
We know. It's a mouthful. You can call us LRR.
We're a bi-partisan organization working towards drug policy and sentencing reform in Louisiana. We're building a coalition of government and community leaders to pass meaningful legislation and change the way we treat nonviolent drug offenders in the criminal justice system.
Sentencing reform is neither a liberal idea nor a conservative idea. It's a common sense solution that Louisianans support.
What we're doing:
Our multi-pronged approach to policy reform involves lobbying, organizing, and public education and advocacy. We work with community and business leaders, allied organizations, and elected and government officials to assess the need for legislative change and to advocate for those changes.
- Reduce the use of mandatory minimum sentences for nonviolent drug offenses,
- Redirect resources from excessive incarceration to more effective practices and programs,
- Lessen criminal penalties for marijuana possession.
Trust us, we know this won't be easy. The fight for justice reform will be an uphill battle the whole way, but we're in it for the long haul.
