The Center for Children's Rights is a nonprofit law office that defends the right of every Louisiana child to fairness, dignity, and opportunity.
Our Children's Defense Team is the juvenile public defender in New Orleans, where our holistic, team-based, cross-disciplinary advocacy helps young people achieve their legal and life goals in more than 1,200 cases each year.
Statewide, we provide resources and training for public defenders who work with children, and we advocate for law and policy reform to build a juvenile justice system that is fair, compassionate, and supportive of positive youth development.
